Countdown Update

The weather and winds continue to cooperate as NASA and SpaceX prepare for the liftoff of the company’s Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft on the Demo-1 mission, an uncrewed flight to fully demonstrate this new crew transportation system. Launch remains targeted for 2:49 a.m. from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Eastern Range is “go” as well, and both of the rocket’s stages are almost fully fueled.

The International Space Station will be flying at an altitude of 258 statute miles over central Iraq at the time the SpaceX Falcon 9 lifts off from Launch Complex 39A.
