Photos: SpaceX rocket standing on launch pad

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket stands on Cape Canaveral’s Complex 40 launch pad ahead of a Feb. 8 launch attempt with NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory. The rocket will send the 1,250-pound spacecraft on an escape trajectory toward an operating post nearly a million miles from Earth to detect incoming solar storms.
