SpaceX is hoping the third time will be the charm as they count down to Wednesday launch of an observatory.
SpaceX tried again, unsuccessfully Tuesday to launch a new observatory into deep space as well as landing a booster that carried it up. Dangerously high winds kept it grounded.
The much anticipated launch and booster landing of SpaceX’s deep-space observatory was cancelled on Sunday.
SpaceX is aiming for both a launch and landing within minutes of each other Sunday.
The 1-million-mile destination for a space weather satellite isn’t what has the space community excited. It’s the rocket’s ocean landing that everyone will be monitoring after Sunday’s launch.
NASA astronauts have been hitching rides on Russian rockets to reach the International Space Station since the U.S. retired its space shuttle launches in 2011.
The International Space Station is getting some new guests soon.
SpaceX launched successfully and supplies are headed to the International Space Station but it’s attempt to land the leftover booster did not fare as well.
SpaceX crews will be trying again to deliver supplies to the International Space Station.
After scraping its first launch attempt on Tuesday, SpaceX will try again Saturday.
