SpaceX will try a second time on Thursday to launch a Dragon spacecraft from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station despite lingering weather concerns.
Forecasters are predicting only 30% “go” conditions for the 6:01 p.m. liftoff from Launch Complex 40 and the post-launch booster landing. There will be no window, so the mission must launch at 6:01 p.m. or target another day in early August.
Falcon 9 will fly thousands of pounds of cargo and science experiments to the International Space Station onboard an uncrewed, robotic Dragon spacecraft.
Here’s how to tune in:
