MOSCOW, February 22. /TASS/. SpaceX’s Dragon cargo spacecraft has aborted an approach to the International Space Station, NASA said on Twitter.

The approach was aborted "due to an incorrect value associated with the on board computer," NASA said, adding that the next attempt will be made tomorrow.

The spacecraft was launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on February 19. About 5,500 pounds of research equipment, cargo and supplies are packed into the spacecraft. 

Earlier on Wednesday, Russia’s cargo spacecraft Progress MS-05 set course towards the International Space Station. Its docking is scheduled for February 24.
