The mission — the tenth resupply that SpaceX has conducted for NASA — will provide astronauts on the space station with fresh supplies as well as research materials. The first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket — the company’s Falcon 9 — will attempt a controlled landing at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Space lovers, as well as industry observers, will tune in carefully to watch the launch. A Falcon 9 exploded in September of last year, leading some SpaceX clients to consider other companies to launch their payloads.
The launch is scheduled to take place at 9:39 a.m. E.T. You can watch it live above.
