SpaceX's Manned Dragon launch cancelled today; iOS 14 details revealed, much like Android; Meng's verdict of "double criminality," Huawei: Disappointed . . . Geek knew
SpaceX and NASA's manned Dragon spacecraft launch was canceled today
At 4:21 b.m. Beijing time on May 27, the SpaceX Manned Dragon spacecraft finally missed the launch window due to weather conditions and failed to take off.
Nasa is scheduled to use SpaceX's Falcon 9 and Manned Dragon spacecraft to fly NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Benken to the International Space Station for a 30- to 120-day mission.
But since the launch site is facing a cold front, if it can cross at noon local time, it will get an excellent launch timing. If it is held up by high pressure and the transit speed is slow, it is estimated that it will be delayed by an hour, waiting for the front to pass.
NASA officials say that, based on orbital forces, NASA needs to ensure that the Dragon spacecraft can meet the International Space Station in a timely and accurate manner when it enters orbit. So even if the weather doesn't get better, you've missed the best launch time.
After the announcement of the termination, NASA postponed the launch to the next window, currently locked at 3:22 p.m. local time on May 30, with a 50 percent probability of launch.(Source:Geek Park)
