Tropical Storm Elsa has thrown a wrench in the timing of SpaceX's Dragon cargo spacecraft undocking from the International Space Station, with high winds and heavy rains expected to hit the carrier's landing site off the coast of Florida.
The Dragon was originally set to undock on Tuesday and land in Florida waters via parachute two days later. Now, NASA says the undocking will not occur until Wednesday at the earliest due to the threat of the storm that has killed at least three people in the Caribbean as it makes its way toward the Sunshine State.
