    On Sunday, SpaceX called off it's third launch attempt since Wednesday, NBC News reported. 

    Elon Musk's private space company tweeted that the launch vehicle and the spacecraft were healthy. Monday had been set for a backup launch date at Cape Canaveral, Florida, but SpaceX said an update was pending a data review.

    Mission SES-9 is trying to achieve the first successful rocket landing on an ocean platform. The company hasn't said why previous two attempts were also scrubbed.
