Four astronauts on the International Space Station now have to wait at least one more day to return to Earth after bad weather delayed their SpaceX capsule’s return. 

SpaceX and NASA announced Friday (Sept. 1) that the Crew Dragon capsule carrying their Crew-6 astronauts will now depart the International Space Station (ISS) no earlier than early Sunday (Sept. 3), a 24-hour delay that pushes the crew’s splashdown to just after midnight Monday morning. The Crew-6 astronauts were originally slated to undock on Saturday and land the next day.
