SpaceX will return to flight on the East Coast when a Falcon 9 rocket will launch from Kennedy Space Center's launch complex 39A carrying a Dragon resupply capsule to the International Space Station. This mission has leap frogged the Echostar flight due to the time critical nature of ISS missions.
This will now be the first flight from the re-purposed Shuttle Launch Pad. SpaceX have been refitting the launch complex to allow the flight of both Falcon 9 and Falcon 9 Heavy rockets from the East Coast.
