Last week we posted about SpaceX’s successful static firing test of the Falcon 9 rocket that will be using the Immarsat-5 launch, which is scheduled to happen later today (May 15th, 2017.
If all goes well, the Inmarsat 5 F4 will launch atop of that Falcon 9 rocket from pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
SpaceX has a 51-minute launch window for this mission, which will commence on Monday, May 15, at 7:20 p.m. EDT, or 23:20 UTC.
Should that fail, SpaceX has set a backup window for Tuesday, May 16, at 7:20 p.m. EDT, or 23:20 UTC.
Unfortunately, SpaceX will not attempt to land the Falcon 9’s first stage during this mission due to mission requirements, however, it should be enjoyable anyway.
You can watch it live for yourself via the embed below, but if you aren’t available then we will have some updates for you here on TechNutty.
