SpaceX Launch Scrubbed Due to Cloudy Weather Near Cape Canaveral

Monday, 13 Apr 2015 05:04 PM

SpaceX’s scheduled launch of an unmanned Falcon 9 rocket to resupply the International Space Station was scrubbed because of cloudy weather.

The rocket, carrying the Dragon cargo spacecraft and 4,300 pounds (1,950 kilograms) of supplies and payloads, was slated to blast off at 4:33 p.m. New York time Monday from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

NASA called the launch a “no go” shortly before takeoff, citing the weather.

Space Exploration Technologies Corp., founded by billionaire Elon Musk, has a $1.6 billion contract with the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration to resupply the station. The Hawthorne, California-based company also has a second contract, valued at as much as $2.6 billion, to transport crews.
