SpaceX’s CRS-25 cargo launch pushed back to July 11

The launch of SpaceX’s next cargo mission has been pushed back at least two more weeks, to no earlier than July 11.

The mission, called CRS-25, will send a robotic SpaceX Dragon capsule toward the International Space Station atop a Falcon 9 rocket. CRS-25 was originally scheduled to launch on June 10, but NASA and SpaceX pushed the target date back to June 28 after noticing elevated vapor levels of hydrazine — the propellant used by Dragon’s Draco thrusters — in part of the spacecraft’s propulsion system.
