SpaceX’s plans to launch its latest rocket carrying astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) have been postponed due to a last-minute problem. The mission, which was scheduled to take off from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center early Sunday, had to be aborted at the last minute due to an issue with the rocket’s fuel system.
The problem was discovered during a routine check of the rocket’s systems, prompting SpaceX to cancel the launch just moments before liftoff. The mission was set to be the first time a SpaceX rocket carried a crew to the ISS, as the company continues to expand its role in the space industry.
Officials say the launch will be rescheduled for a later date, with SpaceX and NASA working together to address the issue with the rocket’s fuel system. In the meantime, the astronauts who were set to travel to the ISS will remain grounded until the issue can be resolved.
This is the latest setback for SpaceX, which has faced a number of challenges in recent years as it seeks to establish itself as a major player in the space industry. Despite the setback, the company has continued to make strides, including launching a number of commercial satellites and cargo missions to the ISS.
