NASA, in collaboration with its commercial and international partners, has now rescheduled the launch of the SpaceX Crew-7 mission to the International Space Station for 6:56 a.m. EDT on Thursday, August 17. The new date, adjusted by two days, accommodates the necessary reconfiguration of the launch pad. This follows a fully commercial SpaceX mission on its Falcon Heavy rocket using Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Crew-7 Mission Briefing

The announcement came during a briefing held on July 25 by NASA representatives along with officials from ESA (European Space Agency), JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency), and SpaceX. Each agency – NASA, ESA, and JAXA – along with Roscosmos has a crew member among the four who make up the Crew-7 mission.
