CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Today’s NASA mission was scrubbed due to upper altitude winds and rough seas, creating challenging conditions not conducive for a successful launch and landing of the primary stage of the Falcon 9 rocket on the drone ship named Of Course I Still Love You.
NASA plans to reattempt the launch on December 5, 2019. The launch window opens at 12:29 PM EST from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station SLC-40.
The Falcon 9 will be carrying a Dragon Capsule and commercial cargo resupply mission for the International Space Station (ISS). This will be the Dragon’s 19th resupply mission to the ISS. This particular Dragon spacecraft previously flew in the 4th and 11th commercial resupply mission.
