The SpaceX rocket and Dragon 9 capsule launched
Friday on a resupply mission to the International Space Station is
experiencing problems with three of its four thruster pods, a
spokesperson for SpaceX said.
"After Dragon achieved orbit, the spacecraft experienced an issue with a propellant valve," the statement said.
"One thruster pod is running. We are trying to bring up the remaining three. We did go ahead and get the solar arrays deployed. Once we get at least two pods running, we will begin a series of burns to get to station."
