SpaceX NASA launch: How to watch live [UPDATE: Scrubbed]

03 Juin, 2020, 14:39 | Auteur: Therese Cote
  • Falcon 9 and Crew Dragon are ready for launch from historic Launch Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Centre

A Nasa/ SpaceX launch will broadcast live on NASA TV a few hours before liftoff at 8:22pm BST, and then continuing through docking the next day.

This launch was scrubbed and rescheduled due to inclement weather conditions.

To watch live coverage leading up to and including the mission's launch, you can do so in the video below.

Update 27 May 2020 at 22:22: SpaceX postponed the launch at the last minute due to "unfavourable weather in the flight path".

Demo-2 is now scheduled for today (Saturday, May 30) at 3:22 p.m. For us in South Africa, that will be 21:22 on Saturday. Demo-2 will be SpaceX's second spaceflight test of its Crew Dragon craft and its first test with astronauts aboard. "Weather forecast for launch is 60% favourable".

It's been almost a decade since NASA's spaceflight program was halted, which meant that American astronauts had to rely on Russian Soyuz rockets for crewed flights to and from the ISS.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said the agency and SpaceX worked together to "make the right decision" and put safety first at a time when some were wondering whether the public attention surrounding the flight would create undue pressure to launch. The International Space Station will receive the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft after the 4:33 EDT launch today on Wednesday, May 27, 2020.

The May mission will be a milestone for NASA, which has had trouble turning the page on the space shuttle era.

"We're launching American astronauts on American rockets from American soil".

NASA subsequently abandoned the space shuttle program in 2011 and turned to private industry to develop its next-generation spacecraft.

SpaceX has made 15 unmanned trips to the ISS since 2012, to deliver supplies to the crew aboard the station. However, today's launch will be a bit different: two humans are tagging along for the ride.

Mr Behnken, 48, and Mr Hurley, 53, are experienced Nasa astronauts who have been involved in testing of the Crew Dragon capsule. Hurley and Behnken will join three others already at the station, including commander Chris Cassidy and two Russian cosmonauts working on scientific research.

Behnken and Douglas have been flying to the ISS on Soyuz rockets since the U.S. shuttle program ended. It's also the first time that a SpaceX reusable spacecraft will be sending NASA astronauts into space.
