UPDATE, April 30: The launch has been postponed to no earlier than (NET) May 3 at 3:11 am ET because of an electrical problem aboard the ISS that needs to be fixed before Dragon arrives.  NASA TV coverage begins at 2:45 am ET.   The launch date is dependent on successful resolution of the electrical problem.

UPDATE, April 19:  NASA and SpaceX announced today that they changed the launch date to April 30 at 4:22 am ET because it is “the most viable date for both NASA and SpaceX due to station and orbital mechanics constraints.”
