Brief. Nasa: launch attempt of "Crew Dragon" next Saturday
Initially planned for yesterday it has been cancelled due to the weather
Brief from the world. NASA on its twitter account announced yesterday that:
"Yesterday’s launch was scrubbed due to weather. There were no issues with the @SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft. The next launch attempt is Saturday, May 30 at 3:22 pm ET. #LaunchAmerica".
After Wednesday's scrub due to weather, NASA and SpaceX have targeted Saturday, May 30, for the next launch attempt for the Demo-2 mission, the first launch of astronauts on an American rocket from American soil since the last space shuttle mission in 2011. "I think our teams worked together in a really impressive way, making good decisions all along", NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said afterwards.
Launch of the mission, dubbed Launch America, is scheduled for 3:22 pm EDT on Saturday.
