Launch is targeted for 7 p.m. ET
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – SpaceX has scheduled a Falcon 9 rocket launch for Tuesday, August 9 from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
The launch is targeted for 7 p.m. ET.
The 45th Weather Squadron says the latest weather report shows conditions will be 70-percent favorable for Tuesday’s rocket launch. The biggest concern is the Cumulus Cloud Rule on Tuesday.
The mission will carry another batch of Starlink satellites.
Falcon 9’s first stage booster will attempt to land on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean.
Falcon 9 is a reusable, two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of people and payloads into Earth orbit and beyond. Falcon 9 is the world’s first orbital class reusable rocket.
Reusability allows SpaceX to refly the most expensive parts of the rocket, which in turn drives down the cost of space access.
Coverage of the launch can be seen on Space Coast Daily TV.
