Good Afternoon and Welcome to the NASA Launch Blog!

Cape Canaveral as seen from the International Space Station.
NASA astronaut Steve Swanson took this photo April 16 from aboard the International Space Station. It shows Kennedy Space Center and Merritt Island, plus Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the launch site for today’s liftoff.

We’re an hour and 10 minutes from the scheduled launch of the third operational SpaceX cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. The skies over our Florida launch site have been clearing in the last hour or so and the weather is not violating any of the launch criteria right now. Liftoff remains on target for 3:25 p.m. EDT from Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The weather forecast continues to call for a 40 percent chance of acceptable conditions at launch time. You can also watch NASA TV’s streaming launch coverage here.
