Bad weather delays SpaceX Dragon’s departure from space station to Saturday

A SpaceX resupply ship will have to wait at least one more day before returning to Earth.

Yesterday (Jan. 19), cosmonauts Anton Shkaplerov and Pyotr Dubrov ventured outside the safe confines of the International Space Station to conduct a seven-hour, 11-minute spacewalk. While the pair cleaned up following the spacewalk, SpaceX was preparing its robotic Dragon cargo ship to come back to Earth. Unfortunately, the weather had other plans.
