SpaceX aiming to return to flight next month: Elon Musk

SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Friday his space launch company is aiming to return its rockets to flight in mid-December following a launch pad accident two months ago. During an interview with CNBC, Musk said investigators had figured out why a Falcon 9 rocket burst into flames on September 1 as it was being fuelled for a routine, preflight test.
