SpaceX, which lost a rocket in a launch-pad fireball Sept. 1, is seeking to restart flights in November.

“We’re anticipating getting back to flight -- being down for about three months -- and getting back to flight in the November time frame,” Chief Operating Officer Gwynne Shotwell said Tuesday at an event in Paris. “We’ll obviously take another look at the rocket, focus on the ground systems.”
