SpaceX Looking at May 19 or May 22 for Launch
SpaceX is targeting May 19, with May 22 as a backup date, for the delayed launch of its next demonstration flight as part of the commercial cargo program.
The launch has been delayed a number of times. In an emailed announcement this afternoon, SpaceX spokeswoman Kirsten Brost Grantham said:
"SpaceX and NASA are nearing completion of the software assurance process, and SpaceX is submitting a request to the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station for a May 19th launch target with a backup on May 22nd. Thus far, no issues have been uncovered during this process, but with a mission of this complexity we want to be extremely diligent."
