NASA has delayed the SpaceX commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station from May 1st to May 3rd or later.
On April 29, the space station team identified an issue with one of the station’s Main Bus Switching Units that distributes power to two of the eight power channels on the station. There are no immediate concerns for the crew or the station. Teams are working on a plan to robotically replace the failed unit and restore full power to the station system.
