LOST IN SPAAAAAACE! SpaceX aborts Space Station podule berthing

Posted February 24, 2017

The delayed launch one day later went perfectly - but when the Dragon craft was less than a mile from its space station dock early Wednesday, its computer automatically aborted the maneuver due to an error in its Global Positioning System software.

"Great job with Dragon capture and sorry about the delay", Mission Control radioed to the crew.

The docking failure occurred on SpaceX's second successful launch and landing since a September 2016 explosion destroyed one of its rockets on the launch pad.

However, things might get a bit crowded if the Dragon capsule is forced to abort again.

Yet another arrival is expected early Friday, when a Russian Progress robotic cargo ship is due to deliver another 5,400 pounds of supplies to the station. However, the mission was waved off after the ship received the GPS-related error. The space company has been transporting supplies to the space station since 2012.

In December, Russia lost a load of station supplies shortly after liftoff.
