SpaceX Crew-3 launch delayed once again

Until later this week

NASA has announced that the SpaceX Crew-3 mission to the International Space Station has been delayed for the second time.

Originally, NASA delayed the lift-off to today to avoid "weather considerations," and so the Crew-2 astronauts could greet the Crew-3 team before they departed from the ISS.

The space agency has decided to wait until Crew 2 is back on Earth first, and instead launch the Crew-3 mission on Wednesday, November 10th at 9:03PM ET (02:03 GMT).

According to a tweet from SpaceX, Wednesday has a 80 percent chance of favourable weather for lift-off. If everything goes well, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch vehicle will take off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida and arrive at the ISS at around 7:10 PM ET on November 11th.
