Two attempts to launch the privately owned Space X Falcon 9 rocket have been aborted because of technical issues.

SpaceX says it will try again Friday to launch a new communications satellite that has both public and government applications into geostationary orbit.

The rocket has had several technical issues this year. The launch originally was scheduled for early this year but was called off. More problems kept it on the ground Monday. SpaceX was not granted permission by the U.S. to launch Tuesday or Wednesday due to heavy Thanksgiving air traffic.

The SES-8 satellite will be used in conjunction with other communications systems to increase bandwidth capacity in Asia and provide expansion of services such as maritime communications and distance learning programs.
