The launch of Crew Dragon to the ISS was postponed until April 23

The flight was originally scheduled for April 22.

The second crewed flight on the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS) for a crew change was postponed due to weather conditions from April 22 to 23. This was reported on Wednesday on the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) website of the United States.

The launch was planned from the Cape Canaveral space center in Florida on April 22 at about 06:11 local time. Favorable weather is expected in this area, but NASA experts were concerned about weather conditions along the flight path and at the site of a possible emergency landing. Now the launch is scheduled for 05: 49 am on April 23. The probability of favorable weather conditions at this time is 90%.

The first crewed Crew Dragon flight to the ISS to replace the crew took place in May last year. This time, NASA astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur, European Space Agency astronaut Tom Pesquet, and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Akihiko Hoshide will travel to the International Space Station on board.
