Almost after a decade, NASA in partnership with SpaceX has scheduled to launch a space rocket carrying astronauts to orbit from the United States launch site at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
While this isn’t the first time NASA will be sending astronauts to space, this launch will be an historical one for SpaceX because this is their first.
Also, who won’t be fascinated to see a rocket launch, especially if since it’s the last launch happened so 9 years ago back in 2011.
Originally, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket was scheduled to launch astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley to orbit yesterday 27th May, 2020. But launch was cancelled due to some unfavorable weather conditions.
However, the launch is now scheduled to the liftoff is now schedule to take place this Saturday, May 30th at 3:22 p.m. EDT, or 19:22 UTC, or 3:33 PM Eastern Time.
If this liftoff also fails, which am seriously praying it should not, there is an additional backup dates planned for Sunday, May 31 at 3:00 p.m. EDT, or 19:00 UTC.

As mentioned earlier, the historical SpaceX launch of the 2 astronauts will take place at the NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The live streams will start 4 hours before launch so that you don’t miss a single thing.
