[b]SpaceX delays first launch to space station[/b]
After conducting a review of their recent progress, SpaceX decided that it needed more time to finish "hardware-in-the-loop" testing and properly review and follow up on all data.
While it remains possible that the Falcon 9 topped with the company's first International Space Station-bound Dragon capsule could launch on May 3, 2012, SpaceX said "it would be wise" to add a few more days of margin in case things take longer than expected.
As a result, the launch is likely to delayed from April 30 by one week, pending coordination with NASA.
SpaceX will further advise when a new target date is set.
