CAPE CANAVERAL, FL - JUNE 03: In this handout provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, with the Dragon spacecraft onboard, launches from pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center on June 3, 2017 in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Dragon is carrying almost 6,000 pounds of science research, crew supplies and hardware to the International Space Station in support of the Expedition 52 and 53 crew members. The unpressurized trunk of the spacecraft also will transport solar panels, tools for Earth-observation and equipment to study neutron stars. This will be the 100th launch, and sixth SpaceX launch, from this pad. Previous launches include 11 Apollo flights, the launch of the unmanned Skylab in 1973, 82 shuttle flights and five SpaceX launches. (Photo by Bill Ingalls/NASA via Getty Images)
SpaceX is set for a historic launch.
A Falcon 9 rocket is set to blast off today from Cape Canaveral in the company’s first launch as part of a US Space Force mission. The Space Force was created in December, and the rocket in today’s launch will carry satellites for military use. A 15-minute launch window begins just before 4 o’clock this afternoon, Eastern time. Weather is 60-percent “Go.”
Also, I have binged Space Force on Netflix and despite what haters say, it is pleasantly entertaining.
