SpaceX delays launch of Korea's new satellite.

South Korea said Monday that its new satellite launch has been delayed as American rocket company SpaceX requested more time to inspect its Falcon 9.

The launch date has been tentatively rescheduled at either Nov. 25, 26 or Dec. 1, the Ministry of Science and ICT said.

SpaceX, founded by Elon Musk, did not provide details on the inspection schedule of its two-stage rocket, according to the ministry.

Falcon 9 had been scheduled to lift off at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California around 10:32 a.m (U.S. local time) on Nov. 19 with the aim of putting the "Next Sat-1" into orbit.
