NEW YORK, December 18. /TASS/. Launch of the US cargo ship Dragon to the International Space Station (ISS) that was initially scheduled for December 19 has been put off until January 6, 2015, the private company SpaceX that built it reported on Thursday.

Its executives said technical problems had emerged this week during static testing of engines of the Falcon 9 missile that was supposed to take the ship into orbit. In the wake of it, SpaceX decided to do a runoff testing of the engines.
