Officials in Florida said on Friday that SpaceX's rescheduled first launch of astronauts could again be disrupted by bad weather. The SpaceX and NASA joint mission was supposed to launch on Wednesday, seeking to be the first to send humans into orbit from U.S. soil in nearly a decade, and the first time a private company has put astronauts into space, but it was canceled just minutes before takeoff amid lightning and rain. It was rescheduled for Saturday or Sunday, but forecasts show a 50 percent chance of rain and clouds. President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence had arrived at Kennedy Space Center in Florida to watch SpaceX's Falcon 9 and Crew Dragon spacecraft take off, and are planning to return on Saturday.
