SpaceX delays space station delivery due to high wind

The CRS-19 mission is SpaceX's 12th launch of 2019. But the company halted the countdown because of excessive upper-level wind at Cape Canaveral and also out in the Atlantic.

The first guests at the hotel will be two robots called Robotic External Leak Locators (RELL - because acronyms).

"The objective is to protect sensitive tools and make them more accessible and easier to use", Mark Neuman, RiTS project manager for Northrop Grumman. The leak detectors have mass spectrometers that can find leaks from the space station, NASA officials said. Keeping RELL inside the station takes up space that could be used for other scientific hardware and experiments.

The residents of the International Space Station recently celebrated Thanksgiving in their own unique way, but they're right back to work this week.

Neuman said the toolbox might stow camera inspection equipment, wire cutters or other robotic equipment in the future.


The Robotic Tool Stowage (RiTS) was developed by Satellite Servicing Projects Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center as a special protective storage unit for important robotic tools.

Once the Dragon is captured, mission control in Houston will send commands to the station's giant arm to rotate and place it on the bottom of the space station's Harmony port. The beer giant said in 2017 that it wants to be the first beer on Mars.

The launch is now targeted for December 19.

This Dragon Capsule previously launched the CRS-4 and 12 missions to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The Dragon cargo spacecraft being used for the launch has actually flown twice before, but the Falcon 9 booster is brand new.
