SpaceX is set to launch a cargo mission to the International Space Station and land a rocket back on Earth today (Dec. 5), and you can catch all the action live.
A Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to launch a robotic Dragon capsule toward the orbiting lab from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 1:16 p.m. EST (1816 GMT); the two-stage rocket’s first stage will also attempt to land back at Cape Canaveral shortly after liftoff. You can watch it live here at Space.com, courtesy of NASA, beginning at 1 p.m. EST (1800 GMT).
You can also watch directly via NASA or SpaceX, both of which will webcast the launch. [Gallery: Inside Dragon, SpaceX’s Private Spacecraft]
