CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - A space station cargo ship will remain Earthbound for a while longer.

With less than two hours remaining, the Space X company called off Monday's planned launch from Cape Canaveral.  A new launch date has been set for Friday at 3:25 p.m.

There was no immediate explanation for the postponement. The launch already had been delayed a full month.

NASA almost delayed the launch over the weekend because of a computer outage at the International Space Station. But it decided Sunday that everything would be safe for the arrival of the Dragon capsule and its 2 1/2 tons of supplies.
