SPACE reports that NASA and SpaceX have postponed the “return to Earth of the CRS-14 Dragon cargo ship” from the ISS until Saturday due to “rough seas at its splashdown zone.” According to NASA spokesperson Gary Jordan, mission managers wanted to avoid unnecessary risk to scientific experiments and equipment aboard the Dragon. Jordan stated, “It’s really the weather,” and that SpaceX and NASA “were looking at sea states and waves.” The Dragon capsule will return more than 4,000 pounds of “cargo, science experiment samples and technology demonstration gear.” (Image Credit: NASA)
