Weather Looks Favorable for Friday Launch

There is a 90 percent chance of favorable weather for Friday’s planned liftoff of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on the company’s eighth flight to deliver supplies, science experiments and technology demonstrations to the International Space Station. Launch is scheduled for 4:43 p.m. EDT from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
