Space Exploration Technologies, better known as SpaceX, is scheduled to launch a Falcon 9 rocket carrying the Dragon spacecraft at 10:10 a.m. ET. The spacecraft will ferry 1,268 pounds of supplies for the space station crew and for experiments aboard the orbiting laboratory.
NASA reported Thursday that the weather forecast is 80% favorable for liftoff from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
The unmanned Dragon spacecraft is scheduled to rendezvous with the space station on Saturday. Astronauts will use one of the orbiter’s robotic arms to grab the capsule and attach it to the station. It’s set to remain attached for three weeks and will return to Earth on March 25.
