It's Launch Day!

Final preparations are underway for today's 5:55 p.m. EDT launch of the eleventh SpaceX (@SpaceX) cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station (@ISS) from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida (@NASAKennedy). The SpaceX Dragon spacecraft will liftoff into orbit atop the Falcon 9 rocket carrying about 6,000 pounds of crew supplies, equipment and scientific research to crewmembers living aboard the station. The flight will deliver investigations and facilities that study neutron stars, osteoporosis, solar panels, tools for Earth-observation, and more. Image credit: NASA/Bill Ingalls
