SpaceX is scheduled to launch its its Dragon spacecraft aboard a Falcon 9 rocket on a resupply mission to the International Space Station this morning.
SpaceX's billionaire founder, Elon Musk, posted a zoomed-in view to Instagram. The complex also was used to launch the Apollo moon missions.
The rocket, which was sent up from Launch Complex 39A - the same spot from which astronauts flew to the moon almost a century ago - is carrying a load of supplies for the International Space Station (ISS). The successful rocket recovery was the third at Cape Canaveral, in addition to five more landed at sea on unmanned drone barge landing pads.
It's not out of the question that Saturday's problem is somehow related to the minor upper-stage helium leak detected the day before, he reported.

The company will use Falcon Heavy or the upgraded Falcon 9 that has the capacity to carry heavy payload to place Dragon spacecraft on the space. Not only did SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket lift off without a hitch, its first stage also returned to land right back on a platform on Earth.
But September's launch pad mishap was a spectacular reminder of just how unpredictable rockets can be sometimes.
Following the launch, SpaceX plans to try landing the booster portion of the Falcon 9 at a different part of Cape Canaveral. The company has successfully launched a Dragon spacecraft that is on its way to the International Space Station.
"Some of humanity's greatest adventures in orbit began at Launch Complex 39A", Nasa said in a statement. There, Astronauts Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency and Shane Kimbrough of NASA will use the space station's robotic arm to reel the Dragon into the ISS.
