NASA and SpaceX are now targeting Sunday for the launch of the Crew-1 mission to the International Space Station (ISS) due to onshore winds and first-stage booster recovery readiness.

The decision to delay the launch was taken after teams completed the final major review for the mission on Friday. Crew-1 is the first crew rotation flight of a US commercial spacecraft with astronauts to the space station following the spacecraft system’s official human rating certification.
