Spanish satellite communications operator Hispasat announced that the scheduled 25 February launch of its 30W-6 satellite at the SpaceX site in Cape Canaveral (Florida) was delayed due to technical reasons. The company said SpaceX needs to conduct additional testing on the payload fairing's pressurisation system, which protects the rocket's cargo through earth's atmosphere. The launch will take place as soon as the incident is resolved, said Hispasat, with SpaceX adding that a new targeted launch date will be confirmed "once testing is complete and pending range availability".
