SpaceX’s next resupply mission to the International Space Station will take place no earlier than Dec. 12, NASA officials said today.
SpaceX was scheduled to launch on Friday a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
NASA and our commercial cargo provider SpaceX are targeting no earlier than Dec. 12 at 11:46 a.m. EST for their 13th commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station. This new launch date takes into account pad readiness, requirements for science payloads, space station crew availability, and orbital mechanics. Carrying about 4,800 pounds of cargo including critical science and research, the Dragon spacecraft will spend a month attached to the space station.
The launch will be SpaceX’s 13th contracted cargo run to the International Space Station for NASA.
