SpaceX’s launch of a Dragon supply ship to the International Space Station has been rescheduled to Saturday, June 3 at 5:07 p.m. EDT (2107 UTC).

A launch attempt on Thursday was scrubbed due to dangerous lightning near Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. The two-day delay is required so workers can replace time-sensitive cargo aboard the spacecraft.

This is SpaceX’s 11th commercial supply mission to the station under a contract with NASA.

SpaceX will webcast the launch at NASA TV also will cover the launch at
