Nasa and SpaceX mutually decided to move the launch date of the uncrewed Demo-1 flight test from January 7 to January 17. The decision of shifting dates was taken so that the Dragon spacecraft gets time to return from the 16th commercial resupply of service mission of a company.

Key data will be provided by SpaceX Demo-1 which is associated with the integrated rocket, autonomous docking systems, the landing profile, ground before the flight test of the company with astronauts which is known as Demo-2.

We still have more work to do as the certification process, hardware development and readiness reviews continue, The key readiness reviews along with NASA’s continued analysis of hardware and software testing and certification data must be closed out prior to launch. The upcoming steps before the test missions are critical, and their importance can’t be understated. We are not driven by dates, but by data. – Kathy Lueders, manager of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program

“Ultimately, we’ll fly SpaceX Demo-1 at the right time, so we get the right data back to support the in-flight abort test and the next test flight when our astronauts are aboard. However, the fact we’re coordinating target dates with the Eastern Range is a great example of the real progress we’re making with commercial crew and how close we are to actually fly American spacecraft and rockets from American soil again” she added.
