April 13, 2015 – SpaceX had to postpone the planned launch today of its Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Dragon spacecraft due to weather conditions that violated the rules for launching. It is SpaceX’s sixth commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station.

The next launch opportunity is Tuesday, April 14, at 2:10:40 p.m. MDT. NASA Television coverage will begin at 1 p.m. at: http://www.nasa.gov/nasatv.

The spacecraft is loaded with more than 4,300 pounds of supplies, science experiments, and technology demonstrations, including critical materials to support about 40 of more than 250 science and research investigations during the station’s Expeditions 43 and 44.
