SpaceX had planned to launch a Falcon 9 rocket at noon local time Wednesday to carry out a resupply mission to the International Space Station,media BGR reported. The mission included a large number of scientific experiments and supplies for the staff of the orbiting laboratory. Unfortunately, shortly before the planned launch, SpaceX was forced to cancel its mission due to windy weather and potentially dangerous conditions at sea, and SpaceX’s unmanned ships were placed at sea.
SpaceX explained in a tweet: “Due to the dynamic conditions created by high-altitude and high winds at sea around the ‘Of Course I Still Love You’ unmanned vessel, plans are planned to be cancelled today. The next launch is tomorrow – 12:29 p.m. or 17:29 EST. “
SpaceX’s unmanned ship is like a portable landing pad for a reusable rocket. The system used to run well on SpaceX, but due to the nature of the rocket being recovered on board, it is important to ensure that weather conditions permit, otherwise the risk of landing failure will increase significantly. The combination of harsh sea conditions and high-altitude winds was enough to delay the launch.
When the Falcon 9 is finally able to launch its Dragon cargo ship into the air, it will carry a large load of equipment. The astronauts will conduct experiments on barley malt sgrown in space to see how the resulting malt may differ from the malt harvested from Earth. In the future, barley may play an important role in astronaut nutrition on long-distance space missions.
