When is the SpaceX-NASA Crew-1 launch date?
NASA and SpaceX are targetting the morning of October 31, after originally planning to launch on October 23.
The date conflicted with upcoming Soyuz missions and the new launch date gives NASA and SpaceX more time to prepare.
NASA’s Tori Mclendon said: “This additional time is needed to ensure closure of all open work, both on the ground and aboard the station, ahead of the Crew-1 arrival.
“The increased spacing also will provide a good window of opportunity to conduct additional testing to isolate the station atmosphere leak if required.
