A post on NASA's blog said that the failed launch attempt that took place on Saturday evening was postponed “due to unfavorable conditions in the flight path of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and the Dragon spacecraft.”

“The Crew-8 launch will carry NASA astronauts Matthew Dominick, Michael Barratt, and Janet Epps, as well as Roscosmos astronaut Alexander Grebenkin, to the orbiting laboratory. The target docking time is around 3 a.m. Tuesday,” the post read.
