The launch of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle in the United States with the Dragon spacecraft, which is supposed to deliver cargo for the crew of the International Space Station (ISS), was canceled due to weather conditions. This was reported on Saturday on the SpaceX Company’s Twitter page.
The launch of the spacecraft as part of SpaceX’s 23rd commercial resupply mission to the ISS was scheduled for 03:37 East Coast time and was supposed to take place from the John F. Kennedy Space Center site at Cape Canaveral in Florida. The next launch attempt is expected on August 29 at 03: 14.
It was planned that the device would deliver various equipment to the station for conducting scientific experiments, in particular, devices that can detect vision problems. The Dragon was also supposed to deliver various useful materials on board, including concrete, composites, and substances that can protect against the effects of radiation.
The previous launch of the Dragon cargo ship to the ISS from the Cape Canaveral cosmodrome took place on June 3.
