Cape Canaveral, Florida (AP) — SpaceX aims to launch a third crew one hour before sunrise on Friday.

Four astronauts representing the United States, Japan and France were to fly to the International Space Station on Thursday. However, due to bad offshore weather, the lift-off was delayed.

SpaceX Dragon Capsules require gentle waves and wind in case of an urgent splashdown when ascending into orbit.

For the first time, the Elon Musk company launched an astronaut using recycled capsules and rockets.

The capsule was launched last May with the first crew of SpaceX, and the rocket lifted the second crew in November.
