SpaceX Falcon launch cancelled due to leak

SpaceX is a company that designed and developed one of the first private spacecraft used by NASA to ferry supplies to the ISS. The ISS is the orbiting space station that is home to an international crew of astronauts from around the world.

Thanks to SpaceX and other companies, the US can send supplies and experiments to the ISS without having to rely on other countries. To get astronauts to the ISS, the US hitches a ride on Russian spacecraft.

SpaceX was set to launch a Falcon rocket with a Dragon capsule set to rendezvous with the ISS this week. The countdown to launch was on and had only an hour to go before liftoff. However, SpaceX personnel found a problem with the rocket in the form of a leak reports NY Daily News.

Had the leak not been discovered, the launch could have resulted in an explosion and the loss of all the content of the capsule. The launch was cancelled until repairs can be made to the spacecraft. SpaceX says that it thinks the issue can be fixed by Friday.

That will be the last chance to fly to the ISS before astronauts have to make repairs to the orbiting platform having to do with the cooling system that has been trouble prone of late. The leak that stopped the launch was of helium in the first stage of the rocket. If repairs can’t be made by Friday, there is no indication of when the launch might take place.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
