SpaceX Launch, the the first human launch to orbit from U.S. soil in nearly a decade and also the first time a private company has performed the feat has been cancelled.
The historical launch powered by The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk would have seen two veteran astronauts launch into space. However, the mission has been delayed by lightning and rain.
NASA’s next phase of Space Exploration will have to wait until the weekend.
When launching rockets , explorers do not just looking at the weather around the rocket but also at the weather in the ocean around the abort areas. In the rare chance of an abort, they need the waters to not be too choppy for recovery teams.
