Washington - A delayed supply run to the International Space
Station is now set to launch on 14 April 2014.
The private company SpaceX will be making its fourth trip to
the space station from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
The launch was postponed twice last month, the last time
because of an electrical short on Air Force ground equipment.
Nasa announced the new launch date on Friday.
The unmanned capsule, called Dragon, will bring up legs for
the station's humanoid robot, a grow lamp for vegetables in orbit and 2 270kg
of supplies and experiments.
The company will also test landing legs for the return of
the first stage of the Falcon 9.
