Other NASA flights depending on the Falcon 9 are still on track, including a partnership with the ESA on a satellite (Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich) launching November 10th and a resupply mission due in late November or early December.

It’ll be a while before such flights are considered normal, but this is a crucial step in that direction.
