SPACEX CREW DRAGON: ELON MUSK DECRIES 'STRANGER THAN FICTION' PROBLEM

The capsule is scheduled to send up four astronauts no earlier than 7:49 p.m. Eastern time on November — a mission dubbed "Crew-1." It will be the first non-test, crewed mission since the successful crewed test flight in May 2020.
But ahead of the big launch, SpaceX vice president Hans Koenigsmann explained in a NASA briefing this week that a problem with a "nail polish"-like substance discovered during a previous launch threatened to derail the grand plans. The problem already caused NASA to delay the Crew-1 flight earlier this month.

"Truth is stranger than fiction," Musk wrote on his Twitter page in response to an article on the issue from Teslarati.
