SPACE reports that a SpaceX resupply mission to the ISS has been delayed from Friday, December 8 to Tuesday, December 12 “at the earliest.” NASA officials said Tuesday that the new launch date “takes into account pad readiness, requirements for science payloads, space station crew availability and orbital mechanics.” During the mission, a SpaceX dragon capsule will deliver around 4,800 pounds of scientific equipment, “including a space-junk tracker and a machine built by California company Made In Space that will manufacture optical fiber on orbit.” (Image Credit: NASA)
