SpaceX and NASA will wait until Sunday morning to fly the CRS-21 Dragon cargo mission to the International Space Station (ISS), after Saturday’s opening launch attempt was called off. “Due to poor weather in the recovery area for today’s attempt,” SpaceX tweeted, “now targeting Sunday, December 6 at 11:17 a.m. EST.” The long-awaited mission is the first flight under the second-phase Commercial Resupply Services (CRS2) contract with NASA and will feature the debut of the cargo-carrying version of Crew Dragon.
