SpaceX has delayed a mission to deliver supplies to the International Space Station for at least a day. The company now hopes to launch the rocket for NASA on Wednesday from Space Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
The delay was announced via tweet:
Now targeting Dec. 13 for launch of CRS-13 from SLC-40 to allow for additional time for pre-launch ground systems checks.

The recycled Falcon 9 rocket being used originally flew in June, while the Dragon employed for the mission delivered a shipment to the space station in 2015.
This is SpaceX’s 13th commercial resupply services mission for NASA.
