SpaceX will take another crack at its first crewed mission today (May 30), weather permitting, and you can watch the historic liftoff live.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to launch the Crew Dragon capsule today at 3:22 p.m. EDT (1922 GMT) from Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, kicking off the crucial Demo-2 test flight to the International Space Station (ISS). You can watch the launch and lots of pregame festivities live here at Space.com, courtesy of NASA TV; coverage begins at 11 a.m. EDT (1500 GMT).
SpaceX first tried to launch Demo-2 on Wednesday (May 27) but had to scrub the attempt about 20 minutes before liftoff due to bad weather. There’s a 50% chance that Mother Nature will cooperate today, according to the latest forecasts.
