Seems like a computer problem.

It was a computer that halted the countdown but that doesn't mean that the computer is the issue. It is designed to do that if there are any readings off nominal. Until they know why the computer called the halt, and what, if any, reading was responsible they won't know where the fault is.

Butch and Suni are both space shuttle veterans, they will be used to holds, scrubs and delays.

It will also be the first time in any nation's history that a country has two different crewed vehicles at their disposal (along with the SpaceX Crew Dragon of course), It will also be the first time in history that four different crewed vehicles are in service together (along with Russia's Soyuz and China's Shenzhou). With a Crew Dragon and a Soyuz already at the ISS and a Shenzhou at the Tiangong space station all four will be in orbit together.

With NASA's Orion spacecraft and India's Gaganyaan due to join the party within about a year and SpaceX's Starship at sometime in the not too distant future we truly live in exciting times.

Is this the start of the space nations working together Waspie if so it’s got to be a good thing right…

Space nations have been working together for a long time

The International Space Station is proof of this. Before that, there was the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project and space shuttle missions to the Russian Mir space station. The space shuttle carried a Canadian robotic arm and frequently carried a European module called Space Lab, as well as astronauts from Russia, Japan,Europe, Canada and other nations.

In uncrewed exploration there has been cooperation almost since day one. There will continue to be rivalries and cooperation, both on a national basis and, increasingly, on a commercial basis. Cooperation and competition are both good drivers of progress when harnessed correctly.

A lot of academics look for common ground and work together and always have. It's just getting politicians and their followers to do it.

My "team" in the Silk Road Foundation consisted of a NYC Jewish Lawyer and Khazar historian, a Iranian Muslim archaeology professor from Tehran, a Russian anthropologist from St. Petersburg and Chinese historian among others. We all got along beautifully.
