CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA and SpaceX are now targeting Friday for the launch of the Crew-2 mission due to “unfavorable weather conditions” along the flight path.
The launch was originally scheduled for Thursday but it is now expected to lift off at 5:49 a.m. Friday.
NASA said conditions around the launch site were expected to be favorable for liftoff, but mission teams said conditions along the flight path and recovery area were unfavorable in the unlikely event of a launch escape.
The U.S. Space Force 45th Weather Squadron predicts a 90% chance of favorable weather conditions at the launch pad.
Officials said the primary weather concerns for the launch area will be liftoff winds.
