SpaceX says rocket launches could resume as soon as November

Gwynne Shotwell, president and chief operating officer of SpaceX, is photographed at the company's headquarters in Hawthorne on May 29, 2013. SpaceX said it expects to resume launches as soon as November, avoiding a lengthy delay after its Sept. 1 launch pad explosion grounded flights and destroyed a Falcon 9 rocket and a communications satellite. Speaking at a satellite business conference in Paris, President and Chief Operating Officer Gwynne Shotwell said the Hawthorne company is “anticipating getting back to flight -- being down for about three months -- and getting back to flight in the November time frame,” according to Bloomberg.
