BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL AIR FORCE STATION – SpaceX has scrubbed Wednesday’s rocket launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station due to “high altitude winds”.
Officials with SpaceX say the team will try to launch tomorrow.
Launch is targeted for 12:29 p.m.
The Falcon 9 rocket will carry the Dragon spacecraft which will carry crew supplies and hardware to the orbiting laboratory to support the Expedition 61 crew for the 19th mission under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services contract.
Following the rocket launch, SpaceX will attempt to land on the drone ship ‘Of Course I Still I Love You’ located in the Atlantic Ocean.
The space station is a convergence of science, technology and human innovation that demonstrates new technologies and enables research not possible on Earth.
The orbiting laboratory has been occupied continuously since November 2000. In that time, more than 230 people, and a variety of international and commercial spacecraft have visited the orbiting laboratory.
The space station remains the springboard to NASA’s next great leap in exploration, including future missions to the Moon and eventually to Mars.
