Nasa, Spacex Crs-26 Mission Postponed To November 26


The spacecraft will lift off from the Launch Complex 39A, at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The mission was already pushed from November 18 to November 22 due to a coolant leak in the Dragon spacecraft. 

The resupply mission for the International Space Station by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and SpaceX has been postponed to November 26. The CRS-26 mission, slated for November 22, was delayed due to poor weather conditions. The mission is the 26th commercial resupply mission operated by Elon Musk’s space corporation SpaceX.

The agency is now targeting a launch at 2:20 pm ET on November 26. The spacecraft will lift off from Launch Complex 39A, at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The mission was already pushed from November 18 to November 22 due to a coolant leak in the Dragon spacecraft.

SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft will be taking 7,700 pounds of supplies, equipment and several science investigations. The spacecraft will autonomously dock with the International Space Station’s Harmony module. Included in the payload is the next pair of International Space Station Roll Out Solar Arrays (iROSAs). The arrays are expected to significantly augment the scientific laboratory aboard the power.

Also included are four CubeSats, which are part of NASA’s Educational Launch of Nanosatellites, or ELaNa program. These include Measurement of Actuator Response in Orbit (MARIO) – which will augment an existing CubeSat with telescopes, Scintillation Prediction Observation Research Task (SPORT) – a Brazil-US joint scientific investigation over the formation of plasma bubbles, Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology’s Research and Education Vehicle for Evaluating Radio Broadcasts (TJREVERB) – which was developed by high school students to test the strength of iridium radio signals, and petiSAT – which will study the effect of plasma bubbles on communication signals, GPS, and radar signals.

After depositing the payload, the reusable Falcon 9 payload will make a controlled descent back to the planet with the Dragon spacecraft.
