The most anticipated SpaceX launch of 2020, called Crew Dragon 2, gets postponed.
The 12-year long SpaceX project, called Crew Dragon 2, became the most anticipated launch of 2020, and is the successor of the SpaceX Dragon 1 mission. It was set to be launched at 4:30pm EDT but, at around 4:00pm, the weather took a slight turn for the worse. The SpaceX officials initially gave a recommendation of allowing an additional 15 minutes of time to see how the weather would be like, but that was overruled and the whole mission was postponed for three days. It is now confirmed for Saturday 30th May 2020 at 3:22pm EDT.
The event will be largely similar to what it was like on Wednesday, this time however, hopefully, we'll actually see a launch. The two astronauts that will be aboard the Dragon 2 SpaceX rocket are Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, who have previously has space flight experience in the last Space Shuttle missions with Nasa. They now have a new and exciting mission ahead with SpaceX and Nasa to get them to the International Space Station (ISS).
Even though it must have been a huge disappointment when the Dragon 2 mission got postponed, at least it is only for three short days, then they are off to space once again!
Take a look at the video below on the SpaceX Crew Dragon 2, and why it's the most anticipated launch of the year.
