Will you be watching the historic launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket?

For the first time in history a private company, Space Exploration Technologies or SpaceX, will fly a NASA mission to the International Space Station.

The unmanned Dragon spacecraft will deliver much-needed supplies to the orbiting outpost.

The launch was scheduled for 2:55 a.m. (MDT) but take off was aborted just after ignition, they are expected to try again in three days during the next launch window. Coverage is being provided by NASA’s website.

The Dragon spacecraft was scheduled to dock with the International Space Station at midnight on Tuesday, May 22, but that will be pushed back.

Since the retirement of the Space Shuttle fleet, NASA plans to use private companies for the commercial delivery of supplies to the ISS.
