The flight was scheduled for April 22 and was to take place from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Center director Bob Cabana noted that the weather is expected to be good, but they are worried about strong winds and high waves. Now the launch has been postponed to April 23, at 12:49 Moscow time. On Friday, SpaceX will bring American astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur to the orbital station and Japanese Akihiko Hoshide and Frenchman Thomas Pesquet.

In case of successful launch and docking of Crew-2 to the ISS, two American spacecraft will remain at the station simultaneously. The return of the first, launched in November 2020, is scheduled for April 28th. Four astronauts will return on it – Shannon Walker, Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Soichi Noguchi.
