NASA delays SpaceX’s ISS resupply mission over space station glitch

One of the eight solar arrays attached to the International Space Station's truss can be seen in this image. An issue with a Main Bus Switching Unit which distributes the power produced by the arrays has caused mission managers to postpone the launch

Space station power shortage delays SpaceX supply run

The resupply mission was scheduled for 3:59 a.m. on Wednesday and will now move to 3:11 a.m. Friday from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's launch complex 40.

Williams claims nobody was injured and the anomaly has been included.

A major power shortage at the International Space Station has delayed this week's SpaceX supply run. Officials had said the first flight with astronauts may be as early as this summer, but the program is under review. "Electricity generated by a solar station is supplied to all systems of the station on these channels food", - stated in the message. According to ABC News, an old power-switching unit malfunctioned at the space station Monday and knocked two power channels offline.

When the Dragon reaches the space station about three days after launch, Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques will grapple the cargo ship with the space station's robotic arm for docking.

United Nations designates Jaish chief Masood Azhar as global terrorist
But on March 13, the day of the deadline for the listing of Azhar, China had put a hold, citing more time to understand the issue. The proposal was moved the United States , the UK, France and co-sponsored by Australia, Bangladesh, Italy and Japan.


What was affected: Most importantly, the outage has affected redundancy for the Space Station's remote manipulator system (its robotic arm), something that is needed for backup during the SpaceX Dragon capsule's capture. That means two of the eight channels on the station have now lost power. In a statement, NASA said: "There are no immediate concerns for the crew or the station". Then, in 2017, flight controllers used the station arm to replace a second MBSU, proving the task could be accomplished robotically. Any breakdown in this system can cut into power. The April 20 accident - which occurred right before or during the firing of the launch-abort thrusters - sent thick smoke billowing into the sky. But the accident is sure to delay launching a crew Dragon with two NASA astronauts on board. The Dragon that flew last month was supposed to be used for this test in June.
