Nasa postpones flight to ISS due to adverse weather conditions

Sylvie Claire / October 30, 2021

Due to bad weather conditions, Nasa announced Saturday that the flight to the International Space Station (ISS) was delayed. The third manned flight of SpaceX's Crew Dragon was supposed to take off on October 31, but the mission has been postponed to Wednesday, the U.S. space agency said.
 
A big storm, accompanied by strong wind gusts, is crossing the Ohio Valley and the northeastern United States this weekend. The launch of the spacecraft to the ISS has been postponed.
 
Four astronauts will be on board: Raja Chari (USA), who will be the commander, Thomas Marshburn (USA), who will be the pilot, as well as Kayla Barron (USA), mission specialist, and Matthias Maurer (Germany), also mission specialist for the European Space Agency.
 
This will be the fourth manned flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft and the third to the International Space Station (ISS).
