Ideally you weren’t planning to spend your Halloween viewing SpaceX and NASA dispatch their first operational Crew Dragon mission. NASA deferred the dispatch of Crew-1 till mid November at the soonest. SpaceX needs more time to finish the assessment of the ‘off-nominal behavior’ of its Falcon 9 rocket during a private mission. SpaceX needs to know precisely what befell the first rocket stage before work continues.

Kathy Lueders, a NASA director, mentioned said that SpaceX and the National Space Administration are ‘actively working this finding’ and have place a high priority on being a ‘lot smarter’ with respect to the motors throughout the following week.

There were some other NASA missions that were relying upon the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. Ideally, Elon will get those issues taken care of. One of the missions that are at stake is with the ESA (European Space Agency). The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite is the mission. November 10th is when its supposed to launch. It’s a resupply mission, so it’s kinda important.

There truly is a great deal riding on the Crew-1 mission. Demo-2 left a mark on the world. That was when America first got back to space by their own means. Therefor, the Crew-1 mission is the first normal NASA launch utilizing a privately made crew module.
