After repeatedly telling customers and journalists it was confident of resuming rocket launches in 2016, Elon Musk s Space Exploration Technologies Corp. pushed back that timetable to January.SpaceX, as the Hawthorne, Calif., company is called, said on Wednesday it is finalizing the investigation into a catastrophic September explosion of an unmanned Falcon 9 rocket and satellite during routine tests, and anticipates getting back to flight sometime in early January.Postponing the launch allows for additional time to closeout preparations and complete extended testing to help ensure the highest level of mission assurance, the company added.The statement suggests that delays in the probe itself aren t driving the slip, though a person familiar with the process suggested investigators still may be weighing two or three specific details or variables in the fueling system as they strive to determine the root cause of the accident.Space X previously said the explosion, which destroyed the rocket and Space Communication Ltd. s Amos-6 satellite, was the result of problematic fueling procedures rather than a design or manufacturing flaw.Some eight minutes before a scheduled test firing, according to the company, a pressurized helium bottle inside the second stage ruptured, leading to a nearly instantaneous explosion.
