SpaceX’s Crew 6 mission to the International Space Station was canceled two minutes before liftoff on Monday due to a reported “ground control anomaly.”

“Cleared” is the term launch teams use to cancel a launch, meaning it’s postponed until further notice.

Reasons for scrub launches include severe weather, such as strong winds, thunderstorms or low temperatures in the upper atmosphere. Technical or mechanical problems with launching a rocket, spacecraft, payload or ground system are also grounds for canceling or canceling a launch.

NASA said earlier that in addition to Monday’s launch schedule, there is an alternate opportunity tomorrow, Tuesday, February 28 at 10.22am (UAE time).
