SpaceX has launched its live broadcast of its CRS-22 Mission, its Commercial Resupply Services mission to the International Space Station (ISS).
The liftoff is targeted for 10:29pm PDT/1:29 p.m. EDT, or 17:29 UTC, from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
Falcon 9 will launch the reusable Dragon spacecraft to the ISS, and then the rocket booster will attempt to land on the autonomous droneship, ‘Of Course I Still Love You’ in the Atlantic Ocean. This particular Falcon 9 booster will also send four NASA astronauts to the ISS in October.
Dragon is carrying 7,000 pounds of cargo, which includes critical materials for science, food supplies and more.
Backup launch opportunities are set for Friday and Saturday as well.
Check out the live video below, as there’s about 17 minutes left to liftoff.
