NASA postponed the launch of the first regular manned flight of the Crew Dragon spacecraft to the ISS

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has postponed the start to the ISS of the Crew Dragon spacecraft with a crew on board for a day. The reason for the transfer was bad weather conditions. This was announced by the head of NASA Jim Bridenstine in his Twitter account.


According to Bridenstein, the launch was originally planned for November 14, Saturday, but due to strong coastal winds near the spaceport at Cape Canaveral, it was decided to postpone the launch to November 15.

(...) the launch of the first Crew Dragon mission with astronauts to the ISS will take place at 19.27 on Sunday 15 November (3.27 Moscow time on 16 November) due to coastal wind

- said the head of NASA.

Bridenstine noted that the first stage of the Falcon 9 used in the upcoming launch, according to SpaceX's plans, will be used during the next launch of Crew Dragon.

Also, the head of NASA spoke about negotiations with Roscosmos about plans for future joint flights to the ISS. According to him, an agreement on rotational flights has not yet been reached, but both the United States and Russia have expressed deep interest in this. Negotiations are ongoing.

We are moving into a new era where instead of buying seats we will exchange crews

- he said.

Recall that Crew Dragon made its first successful flight in automatic mode in March 2019. On May 30, 2020, the spacecraft sailed to the ISS in manned mode with two NASA astronauts on board after a nine-year hiatus due to the closure of the shuttle program. This was the last major test of the ship before its certification.

            Gorilka is prohibited.
            During the Soyuz flight - Apollo Leonov made a joke on the Americans - he stuck a vodka label on the tubes with borscht.
            The Americans agreed to "drink vodka" with great difficulty, said that they would be fraught with consequences on Earth if they found out.
            But in the end we tried it and got upset :))) ....

          Would have taken off on time - would have repeated the flight time to "Skyleb", eight and a half hours, but now it will be almost 28 hours.

      How do you want some to pass off wishful thinking laughing

      We have more than a dozen assembled ships on the assembly line. Moreover, two ships are commercial and have already been sold to tourists.

      It's really different because it was moved for a day, and not for a couple of years.

    We are moving into a new era where instead of buying seats we will exchange crews
    And instead of selling seats, we will soon buy them.

    In those days, when a country called the USSR could sell a place in a comic ship to anyone, its "patriotic" young citizens dreamed of jeans, a Japanese videocassette, a cassette player, chewing gum and easy money to cut the dough by settling down somewhere where they could "earn extra money." left earnings, sang Tsoi's songs "Changes", looked like and behaved the same way. Now these former young citizens are sitting in a Chinese computer loaded with American software (in Chinese jeans, Japanese technology has outlived itself, and there is already nothing to chew on) and post phrases like the one given in the quote, thinking that they thereby disgrace the Power ... Although today's Power gave them everything they wanted then.
    And the question arises: And why are you whining here and directing criticism to the authorities. You wanted a change. Here you get it. What don't you like? It was worth it? Or, as always, "you are not guilty of anything, and nothing depends on you"? Is this all Gorby, EBN and VVP?
    Now nothing depends. Even a state holiday was introduced "Independence Day". Day of independence of citizens of the Russian Federation from decision-making in the state.
    Reading posts that ridicule the government, scold it or demand something from it, it makes me laugh. What they were striving for, they achieved.
    And instead of selling seats, we will soon buy them

    Who should you buy for? Who should I buy? Dinosaurs will die out, and suckers just need to sell a computer cheaper and give the opportunity to post a witty post on the Forum

    The first flight of the brand new Crew Dragon C2-07 "Resilience" ship.
    Good flight, good hour! drinks
    First operational flight emblem.
    “Building on the legacy of the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, shuttle, Mira, the International Space Station (ISS) and the DM-2 mission, NASA and SpaceX men and women have restored the US ability to fly to space. Crew-1 marks the start of stable public-commercial partnership missions to the ISS, with its Crew Dragon spacecraft at the center of the composition.
    The spacecraft, which consists of a capsule and a cargo bay, flies from the bottom and left to the upper right edge of the figure, symbolizing the start and exit into orbit. The spaceship "Crew Dragon" is set against the background of the stars and with its hull emphasizes the outline of the dragon's head.
    The border of the emblem is in the form of the letter "C", which together with the number "1" in the foreground denotes the mission "Crew-1". Symbols of programs of the past (from right to left: Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Space Shuttle) are inscribed on the border in honor and recognition of their contribution by the Crew Dragon. The silhouette of the ISS, the destination of the Crew Dragon, is also placed near the edge of the emblem in recognition of its contribution to the maintenance of a human presence in low-Earth orbit for the United States and international partners.
    There are no separate names or flags on the border of the logo because, according to the design, the patch is dedicated not only to the crew members on board, but also to all the countless SpaceX and NASA employees who worked together to create the sleek and elegant Crew Dragon spacecraft. The patch reflects respect for their vision, service and support.
    We dedicate this patch to our families! "
