SpaceX rocket lifts off from Florida
A Space Exploration Technologies' Falcon 9 rocket has blasted off from Florida, after a two month delay.
The 224-foot (68-metre) tall rocket, which is putting commercial communications satellites into orbit, lifted off from a launch pad at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 11:15 EDT (15:15 GMT) on Monday.
The SpaceX launch had been hit with technical problems which caused the delay.
