The flight will be the third for this particular Falcon 9 rocket. After launch, the first stage of the rocket made a successful landing on a barge - named "Just Read the Instructions" - floating in the Pacific Ocean, potentially setting the stage for a fourth use of the rocket.

Under the new schedule, the launch will take place from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California around 10:32 a.m. local time (18.32 GMT) on December 3.

SpaceX's first triple-launched Falcon 9 rocket booster lights up to send 64 satellites into space.

This mission will be the mission with more satellites ever carried to orbit by SpaceX and by a US Launch Vehicle.

Spaceflight booked the Falcon 9 to launch 64 small so-called "smallsats" provided by 34 government and private-sector companies and organizations representing 17 nations, including the U.S. Defense Department, the Earth-observation company Planet, universities and even two art museums.

SpaceX's customer for the SSO-A mission, Spaceflight, aims to be a sort of Uber service for space.

Among the satellites crammed into the payload stack was an Australian-built device that will connect remote devices to the internet, and a pair of SkySats-one from the USA and one from Finland-that'll be used to track planes and ships.
