SpaceX addressing Falcon 9 damage ahead of Crew-5 astronaut launch

A Falcon 9 rocket colliding with a bridge was responsible for the damage that delayed SpaceX’s next human launch.

The Falcon 9  first stage was damaged during transport, a SpaceX representative told reporters during a briefing today (Aug. 4).  The briefing topic was SpaceX’s delayed Crew-5 mission, which is now slated to fly four individuals to the International Space Station in late September in a Crew Dragon spacecraft.
