Brevard: SpaceX Crew Rocket Launch Moved to November


NASA astronauts won't be taking a Halloween trip to space on a SpaceX rocket after all.

NASA announced Saturday that the SpaceX Crew-1 mission, which was supposed to launch on October 31, will now be pushed back to early-to-mid November.

NASA says this will give SpaceX extra time to complete hardware testing and data reviews. The evaluation is tied to a recent launch attempt where SpaceX saw "off-nominal behavior" in the first-stage engine gas generators of a Falcon 9 rocket.
