    Weather doesn't look great for SpaceX's next cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station.
    Space Force forecasters expect weather conditions to only be about 30% "go" for the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket and uncrewed Dragon capsule from Kennedy Space Center. Flying from pad 39A, it will mark SpaceX's 26th contracted ISS resupply mission (CRS-26) for NASA.
    The next launch opportunity is instantaneous, which requires Falcon 9 to launch exactly on time or delay until a different day.
    "A blustery day is in store for the Space Coast, with overcast skies and rain showers likely as conditions deteriorate through the day,” Space Launch Delta 45 forecasters said, adding "The chance the periodic weather break occurs during the instantaneous launch window remains low."
