Sunday night's SpaceX Falcon 9 launch attempt was scrubbed. The next launch attempt has been set for 6:07 p.m. Monday.

Issues with a first-stage transmitter and a U.S. Air Force tracking system radar caused crews to scrub the launch attempt.

Weather conditions are about 60 percent favorable for Monday's launch attempt.

On board the rocket is a satellite designed to study space weather and its impact on Earth.

The goal is to study problems originating from our sun as storms on its surface can create solar wind headed for Earth and can disrupt power grids, communications and satellites in orbit.

The Deep Space Climate Observatory is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's newest satellite, which is a partnership with NASA and the U.S. Air Force.

It will orbit approximately one million miles from Earth. The satellite will help detect fast-moving solar winds and give warning between 15 minutes and an hour.

The two-year mission does have enough fuel to last five years.

Meanwhile, SpaceX will try again to land the rocket’s first stage on a barge, which is floating several hundred miles off the Jacksonville coast.

The first attempt weeks ago ended in a fiery crash as the booster used up all of its hydraulic fluid to control its steering fins.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said that problem has been fixed.

The booster is expected to attempt the landing roughly 10 minutes after launch.
