SpaceX and NASA's Astronaut Mission which was scheduled for May 27 at 4:33 p.m. EDT was aborted due to unsuitable weather conditions at the launch site.

The SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket was on stand by with Crew Dragon 2, a class of reusable spacecraft, at US's Kennedy Space Center in Merritt Island, Florida.

Just 17 minutes before the launch time, the crewed flight to space was called off due to cloudy skies and rain at the launch site in Florida.

The launch is postponed to the backup date of May 30th on 3:22 p.m. EDT from the historic launchpad 39A, the same facility that launched the first astronauts to the moon aboard Apollo 11 in 1969.

"Today’s launch was scrubbed due to weather. There were no issues with the @SpaceX. Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft. The next launch attempt is Saturday, May 30 at 3:22 p.m. ET," stated NASA.

"Thank you to NASA and SpaceX for their hard work and leadership. Look forward to being back with you on Saturday!" US President Donald Trump tweeted.
