SpaceX postponed the debut launch of its Dragon spacecraft to Dec. 7 in order to carry out more testing,
The capsule’s first flight, originally scheduled for Nov. 20, will test its capabilities as NASA considers Dragon for the job of transporting astronauts to and from the International Space Station after the space shuttle retires.
The capsule will be carried by the nine-engine Falcon 9 rocket, which made its debut in Cape Canaveral, Fla., in June.
Separately, SpaceX said in a Nov. 9 securities filing that it raised $50 million in additional funding from investors. The names of the investors and the terms of the financing were not disclosed.
