We are up to see another successful launch, hopefully, of NASA contractor Space Exploration 10th commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station.

The Dragon spacecraft will lift-off from launch complex 39A of Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the first for a SpaceX mission.

Lauch complex 39A was previously used by the space shuttles, Appollo and Saturn V missions.

The live launch, like previous NASA-Space X missions, will be covered live.

So here we share that coverage barring any changes in the launch schedule.This is the live webcast of SpaceX resupply mission to ISS.

In case of a change in launch, the opportunity is at 9:38 AM of Sunday, Feb.19.


Today’s launch attempt has been scrubbed because of the thrust vector control system issue that developed late in today’s countdown. The launch team is setting up for a 24-hour turnaround, meaning the team will try again tomorrow morning if the thrust vectoring issue is resolved. Like today, tomorrow’s weather forecast calls for a 70 percent chance of acceptable conditions.

The launch opportunity for Sunday will be at 9:38:59 a.m. EST. The launch teams and Eastern Range are setting up for tomorrow’s attempt. It will be an instantaneous launch window to allow the Dragon spacecraft to reach the International Space Station.
