SpaceX cargo mission delayed again, to July 14

SpaceX and NASA have set a new date for the already-delayed CRS-25 resupply mission that will send a robotic Dragon capsule to the International Space Station aboard a Falcon 9 rocket. NASA now says the robotic mission will launch no earlier than July 14.

Earlier this month, NASA and SpaceX announced they were standing down from the planned June 10 launch of the CRS-25 mission after detecting elevated readings of hydrazine, the propellant used by Dragon’s Draco thrusters, while fueling the spacecraft. The mission was delayed — first to no earlier than June 28, then to no earlier than July 11 — so that the anomalous hydrazine vapor readings inside the Draco system could be troubleshot.
