Atlanta, USA (CNN) — NASA and SpaceX will attempt to launch the joint “Crew 6” mission to the International Space Station on Thursday morning, March 2.
And it was decided to postpone the attempt, which was to be launched on Monday morning, due to a defect related to the ignition fluid that is used for the rocket engines.
“Mission teams decided to open the door to investigate an issue that prevents data from confirming full ignition source load for Merlin’s Falcon 9 first stage engines, or triethylaluminum-triethylboron (or TEA-TEB),” NASA said in a post.
NASA and SpaceX will not launch during a potential window, Tuesday morning, due to unfavorable weather forecasts.
If the ignition system problem is resolved, the next available start attempt is 12:34 AM on Thursday, March 2.
