The recent issue during a parachute test of the SpaceX Crew Dragon is likely to cause a delay to the plans of the Hawthorne, California-based company to launch astronauts the International Space Station, according to a report on Wednesday. According to a report from Parabolic Arc, an abnormal condition early in March during a parachute test for the Crew Dragon potentially delays the SpaceX launch to the ISS until June. The issue–which was unrelated to the parachutes themselves–had forced an abort of a test planned from a helicopter.
