NASA and private aerospace manufacturer SpaceX are delaying their historic space launch Wednesday after poor weather conditions jeopardized the crew's safety.

"SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY"

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine confirmed on Twitter that the launch will be delayed until Saturday, stressing "safety for our crew members" is the agency's "top priority."


"We'll try, try again to #LaunchAmerica on Saturday with liftoff at 3:22pm ET [1922GMT]," he said.

The rescheduling was also confirmed by SpaceX, which said the time slot noted by Bridenstine is the "next launch opportunity" for the mission.
