Description

Florida, May 27 (EFE/EPA).- The historic launch of the NASA-SpaceX manned mission to the International Space Station from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida was scrubbed due to bad weather on Wednesday, with the mission rescheduled for next Saturday.It was to be the first time in the past nine years that a manned mission had gone into orbit from US soil.Heavy cloud cover and a thunderstorm in the area caused mission controllers to cancel the launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule crewed by NASA astronauts Robert Behnken, 49, and Douglas Hurley, 53, about 15 minutes before liftoff, which had been scheduled for 4:33 pm from Launch Pad 39A.(Camera: ERIK LESSER)FOOTAGE SHOWS THE FALCON 9 ROCKET AT THE KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, IN FLORIDA, US.
