Hawthorne-based SpaceX successfully launched another group of astronauts into orbit early Friday, April 23, for an eventual rendezvous with the International Space Station – becoming the first launch involving a previously used spacecraft and rocket.
The launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft Endeavour had been scheduled for about 3:15 a.m. California time Thursday from Cape Canaveral in Florida. But bad weather in the launch zone pushed the mission until 2:49 a.m. California time Friday.
“3… 2… 1… and liftoff! Endeavour launches once again,” NASA tweeted just after 2:49 a.m. PT, as the rescheduled launch came off on time and without any problems. “Four astronauts from three countries on Crew-2, now making their way to the one and only @Space_Station.”
