SpaceX and NASA postpone launch of private Ax-1 astronaut mission to April 8

The launch of SpaceX’s first all-private mission to the International Space Station has been delayed by two days and will now lift off no earlier than Friday (April 8), SpaceX and mission sponsor Axiom Space announced late Sunday.

the Ax-1 mission will fly four civilians, including former NASA astronaut Michael López-Alegría, to the United States for a 10-day mission International Space Station. It was to be boarded on Wednesday (April 6) from Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The Texas based axiom space, which plans to operate its own space stations in the future, gave no reason for the delay, but it likely stems from NASA’s delay of a critical refueling test of its Artemis 1 moon rocket at nearby Pad 39B. This test, originally scheduled for Sunday, was postponed to today (April 4) due to safety issues with ground equipment, causing delays.
