CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla — The launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 v1.1 rocket and its payload of a Dragon automated cargo vessel on the seventh operational flight under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract will have to wait a couple more days before launch. This slip was apparently caused in order to accomplish the work required to get the booster and spacecraft ready for flight.

This report came from Florida Today’s James Dean via Twitter. The launch had been scheduled to launch on June 26, but has been pushed back to no-earlier-than (NET) Sunday, June 28, at 10:21 a.m. EST (14:21 GMT).

The $1.6 billion Commercial Resupply Services contract that SpaceX has with NASA requires that the Hawthorne, California-based company conduct some 14 flights to the International Space Station carrying cargo, oxygen, and crew supplies. After the CRS-7 mission, SpaceX will have reached the “halfway” mark in terms of the number of flights that it has to conduct under the first CRS contract.
