the astronauts will leave later

And it’s a blow for SpaceX after the accident on the rocket which was to fly away…

The first stage of a rocket SpaceX Falcon 9 collided with a bridge during transport. It is supposed to carry astronauts to the ISS (International Space Station) next month, but the damage is severe, so the launch will be delayed. It should finally take place at the end of September.

This stage of the rocket was traveling on the back of a tractor-trailer between California and Texas when the accident took place. The Senior Director of SpaceX’s Human Spaceflight Program said: “We assessed the risks. It was a minor incursion but it still caused damage. »

It’s a blow for SpaceX which is already going through tough times due to persistent hardware issues.
