(Newser) – The space capsule that was supposed to deliver fresh fruit and other supplies to the International Space Station won't be arriving today as planned thanks to yesterday's glitch after takeoff, reports Wired. But engineers at SpaceX say they have resolved the problem with Dragon's thrusters, and it could dock at the station as early as tomorrow. "It was a little frightening there," says Elon Musk, whose SpaceX company faced a potential PR disaster in its quest to become NASA's taxi service. Space.com has more details on what went wrong, and how it got fixed.
