SpaceX Dragon capsule aborts attempt to dock at space station

The mission is part of SpaceX's $3bn (£2.4bn) contract with Nasa to resupply the space station through 2024.

However, as cool as the Flacon 9 landing was, the launchpad used by the Falcon 9 is something even more special.

SpaceX Dragon cargo craft's rendezvous to the space station was aborted early Wednesday morning after the spacecraft's computers received an incorrect navigational update, triggering an automatic wave off. It was originally supposed to dock yesterday, but the computer on board the Dragon aborted the rendezvous because of an issue with the capsule's Global Positioning System.

SpaceX said the problem can be resolved before another attempt to delivery supplies on Thursday, said the AP. There was no impact to the space station, and crew onboard was in no danger. "The next rendezvous attempt is targeted for Thursday morning".

A NASA commander and a European Space Agency engineer captured the Dragon space capsule just before 6 a.m. ET using a robotic arm, according to NASA.
