Watch Live: SpaceX Launches a ‘Very Hot and Fast’ Rocket

1 minute read

Elon Musk’s SpaceX will yet again try to make aerospace history by launching and then trying to land its drone rocket in the Atlantic Ocean. The ship, Of Course I Still Love You, will bring a Japanese satellite into orbit and will be heading up around 1:20 a.m. EST.

The landing will be more difficult than the successful touchdown of a Falcon 9 rocket in April, since will have less fuel to slow down and will be moving on a “very hot and fast mission,” Musk tweeted.

Watch the launch live above starting at 1:20 a.m. EST.
