There is a liftoff scheduled today at 4:43 p.m. EDT for the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. This rocket will launch a Dragon resupply spacecraft to the International Space Station. In preparation, various teams across the U.S. are conducting and monitoring the countdown and liftoff, from SpaceX’s Florida Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to NASA’s Mission Control in Houston. The Dragon spacecraft has about 7,000 pounds of science research, crew supplies, and hardware sealed to support the Expedition 47 and 48 crew members. This will be the company’s eight mission to deliver cargo.
