After a rare power issue discovered at the last minute on the dragon cargo capsule a few days ago in preparation to launch, the trip was postponed until Saturday, 4 May. This time, SpaceX has successfully launched the cargo with a load of supplies for the astronomers who have located them at the International Space Station.
A Dragon capsule, carried by a Falcon rocket, is on board about 5,500 pounds (2,500 kilograms) of supplies and is due to anchor at the space station on Monday. This task is done the second for the cargo capsule so far. The booster, after the launch, has defeated its way in an effortless wharf on a recovery platform that has located miles of the shoreline.
The load is a little late because of some electrical power issues that first occurred at the space station, and then in the rocket spaceX SpaceX position in the Atlantic ocean, just seconds before the entertainment started. The issues were quickly stuck with exchange equipment, power switching system, and for sea launch, generator.

Hans Koenigsmann, vice president of SpaceX was present at the launch site and at some point left this management position and ran outside to watch the rocket as she entered the night sky.
The brand new reinforcement is likely to be used again for the next SpaceX mission while running, and here's the reason why the company and NASA have postponed the launch of the last minute: to repair & # 39 r the transport recovery and working in full force for the landing procedure. This is the first time surgery has been stopped because of the issue of rocket landing.
The booster should have been located at Cape Canaveral Air Service in Florida, but SpaceX is still in the process of cleaning up after the incident in April 20 which blown an empty dragon capsule.
