TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Many spectators came back to watch a second attempt to launch two NASA astronauts. Spectators along Florida's Space Coast on Saturday hoped that this time the weather would cooperate. The first launch attempt on Wednesday was scrubbed with just 17 minutes left on the countdown clock. That disappointed thousands of spectators who had lined up in lawn chairs and under umbrellas and tents to view the first launch with astronauts from Florida in nine years, and the first one by a private company, SpaceX.
