NASA’s SpaceX Crew-6 Launch Scrubbed – March 2 for Next Launch Attempt


Published on: February 28, 2023,

Space X Crew 6 is planned to be sixth crewed operational Commercial Crew flight of a Crew Dragon spacecraft. It is ninth overall crewed orbital flight. The mission was scheduled to launch early in 27 February, 2023. The mission was scrubbed due to International Space Station ( ISS) due to ground system issue. Mission teams have decided to stand down and to investigate as issue preventing data from confirming a full load of the ignition source for the Falcon 9 first stage Merlin engines.



“I’m proud of the NASA and SpaceX teams’ focus and dedication to keeping Crew-6 safe,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. “Human spaceflight is an inherently risky endeavor and, as always, we will fly when we are ready. Space X has removed propellant from Falcon 9 rocket and astronomers have exited the Dragon Spacecraft for astronaut crew quarters. Both Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon Spacecraft are in safe configuration.



NASA and Falcon 9 rocket and dragon will forgo launch opportunity on Tuesday, February 28 due to unfavorable weather conditions. The next available launch attempt is at 12:24 a.m on Tuesday March 2 pending the resolution of the technical issue preventing Monday’s Launch.
