    US astronauts have boarded a rocket set to take off for the International Space Station, even though weather conditions may postpone the launch a second time


    NASA astronauts Doug Hurly and Bob Behnken are planned to blast off from the Falcon 9 rocket, built by Elon Musk's private space flight company SpaceX.

    There is a 50-per-cent chance that volatile weather conditions, including thick clouds and thunderstorms, may postpone the launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
