SpaceX Scrubs ISS Launch Attempt, To Try Again Saturday
Hawthorne, California-based SpaceX scrubbed its resupply mission to the International Space Station on Thursday, due to weather, and will retry on Saturday, June 3rd. SpaceX had been attempting to launch the Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-11) for NASA at 5:55 p.m. EDT. The next launch time is Saturday, June 3 at 5:07 p.m. EDT (2:07 p.m. PT). The CRS-11 will refly a Dragon spacecraft to the ISS, the first attempt by SpaceX to re-use one of its rocket boosters for a NASA mission. The CRS-11 will carry almost 6,000 pounds of supplies and payload, and will be the same Dragon used on the CRS-4 resupply mission in September of 2014.
