Because of weather conditions that violated the rules for launching, SpaceX has postponed its planned launch of its Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Dragon spacecraft. It is SpaceX’s sixth commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station.

The next launch opportunity is Tuesday, April 14, at 4:10:40 p.m. EDT. NASA Television coverage will begin at 3 p.m. at: https://www.nasa.gov/nasatv.

The spacecraft is loaded with more than 4,300 pounds of supplies, science experiments, and technology demonstrations, including critical materials to support about 40 of more than 250 science and research investigations during the station’s Expeditions 43 and 44. For a mission overview, press kit, launch countdown coverage, NASA’s launch blog, and more information about the mission, visit: https://www.nasa.gov/spacex

  1. Hello,

    I’m Masters Student in Aerospace Engineering at Techniche Universitat Munchen, Germany. I would like to know if it’s possible to meet the Astronauts/Cosmonauts who are on earth right now like Yelena Serova and others. Is there any way that i can contact them or request for an appointment? Currently my HOD of Astronautics Department at TUM is an ESA astronaut his name is Dr Ulrich Walter. But i would like to know if there is a way to meet other astronauts??.

    Thank you in advance…
