Florida:28/5/20: SpaceX and NASA decided to postpone its historic first astronaut launch on Wednesday due to severe weather in the region.
NASA and SpaceX will do this all over again in three days.
The next launch attempt is slated for Saturday, May 30, at 3:22 p.m. ET.
Until then, astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley have headed back to quarantine.
The launch director announced the Demo-2 mission was scrub out of an abundance of caution for the safety of the crew on board. It would have been the first time NASA astronauts launched with SpaceX and the first time NASA has launched its own crew since 2011.
If all goes well on Saturday, the SpaceX Demo-2 launch will send NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to the International Space Station on a Crew Dragon spacecraft propelled by a Falcon 9 rocket.
