Tomorrow’s looking like a perfect day for a rocket launch in Cape Canaveral, Florida. SpaceX’s second NASA-commissioned flight to the International Space Station is scheduled to take off in the morning. The mission will deliver a Dragon spacecraft with 1,200 lbs of supplies to the ISS, and will return to Earth loaded up with 2,300 lbs of things taken from the space station. We’re looking forward to seeing the launch, and you can watch it right here.
On Monday, SpaceX had a successful test of the rocket’s engines by firing them for a few seconds on the launchpad. All nine engines fired properly. SpaceX and NASA also held a pre-launch conference to address questions from the media on the launch, and if you’re looking for something to watch until launch time, it’s as good a video as any:
That’s all well and good, but we know what you really want. The launch itself is scheduled for 10:10AM ET with coverage starting a bit sooner at 9:30AM ET Here’s the live stream of the launch. Enjoy:
Yay! We always love a good launch day live stream here at Geekosystem. Hope everything goes well, SpaceX.
