Space travel entrepreneur Elon Musk was initially scheduled to carry out its mission alongside NASA in late March from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
NASA had announced that the March target was postponed to April 20. It has been delayed again to April 22 at the earliest.
The reason for the delay was due to the availability of the times to the space station, NASA spokesperson Dan Huot said “this is driven by orbital mechanics that would keep the astronauts’ need for sleep shifting to a minimum”.
The mission is the 2nd flight using a “Private” spacecraft the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, with the added Crew Dragon capsule it will carry into orbit.
