"The main rules of concern include flight through precipitation, the anvil cloud rule and the cumulus cloud rule", Jeras said.

In the event that NASA and SpaceX are able to launch on Saturday or Sunday, a new launch day and window will be determined.

The next launch window opens up at 15:22 EDT on Saturday, it has been confirmed. Eastern Time on May 30.

Yesterday's attempt to launch NASA's and SpaceX's Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station was plagued by weather issues that ultimately caused the attempt to be scrubbed.

Elon Musk's company came within 17 minutes Wednesday of launching a pair of NASA astronauts for the first time in almost a decade from the USA, before the threat of lightning forced a delay.

"We will feel no pressure".

NASA hired SpaceX and Boeing in 2014 to get the ball rolling again - kicking off a commercial revolution for getting people to low-Earth orbit, according to officials. The rocket and the crew weathered the lightning strike, but the flash and its effects threw a scare into NASA.

A successful launch would mark the return of spaceflight to the United States and the final certification for later flights to the Moon and Mars. NASA has been relying on the Falcon 9 rocket, which will carry the Crew Dragon, to send supplies to the space station.

During the launch of the SpaceX Demo-2 space flight in Florida, there are huge members gathered in the location. But Bridenstine said managers want to make sure the ground crew and the astronauts are all well-rested and ready. America relied on Russian Federation for the past nine years for transportation to and from the ISS.

Another Crew Dragon flight is tentatively scheduled for August 30, depending on how the test flight goes. Conditions along the flight path, therefore, need to be safe enough for the capsule to splashdown, and for the rescue teams to retrieve the astronauts.

"All of these things that we're balancing have to match". Because of this, we may very well be looking at a down-to-the-wire decision yet again. Often, once a launch window opens, there is a certain amount of time they can delay lift-off, and the rocket can still accomplish its task.
