Sharing is caring!

SpaceX’s first four-astronaut launch for NASA has been postponed due to rocket recovery weather. A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon capsule were slated to launch the astronauts to the International Space Station (Nov. 14) from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. However, as per the information given by NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine, the mission now has been shifted to 7:27 p.m. (EST) Sunday, November 15.

This will be the first crew rotation mission to the space station as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Programme.

Crew-1 astronauts will join the Expedition 64 crew of Commander Sergey Ryzhikov, and Flight Engineers Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and NASA astronaut Kate Rubins.

The arrival of Crew-1 will increase the regular crew size of the space station’s expedition missions from six to seven astronauts, adding to the amount of crew time available for research, NASA said.
