1st 2015 SpaceX Resupply Mission to ISS

posted Jan 7, 2015, 11:09 AM by Web Admin

There is a 90 percent chance of favorable weather for the next available SpaceX CRS-5 launch opportunity on Friday, Jan. 9, with the possibility of flight through precipitation as forecasters’ primary concern.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 launch scheduled for Tuesday aborted with one minute, 21 seconds left on the countdown clock. A thrust vector control actuator for the Falcon 9’s second stage failed to perform as expected, resulting in a launch abort. SpaceX is evaluating the issue and will determine the next opportunity to launch the company’s fifth commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station.

If a decision is made to launch on Friday, the liftoff time would be at 5:09 a.m. EST. Live coverage would begin at 4 a.m. A launch on Friday would place Dragon on a 24-hour fast track trajectory to the space station, with grapple on Saturday, Jan. 10, at 5:56 a.m. Rendezvous and grapple coverage would begin at 4:30 a.m.

The next launch opportunity would be at 4:47 a.m. Saturday.
