Poor weather delays SpaceX rocket launch five days

SpaceX's planned rocket launch was delayed five days until Jan. 14 because of bad weather.

The launch was originally scheduled for 10:22 a.m. Monday from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk, announced Sunday on Twitter: "Launch moving due to high winds and rains at Vandenberg. Other range conflicts this week results in next available launch date being Jan 14."

The company set a new launch time of 9:54 a.m. with a backup date one day later for the Falcon 9 carrying 10 Iridium Communications satellites.
