Is the second time a spell? The historic SpaceX NASA launch tries to get off the ground again on Saturday. Departure is scheduled for Saturday 30 September. May, planned. If the countdown is due to weather conditions, it will be postponed until Sunday. Read on to see the live countdown and learn more about what’s in store for you.
The launch is scheduled for Saturday at 15.22 EST.
The historic launch of NASA SpaceX is scheduled for Saturday afternoon September 29th. May, scheduled for 3:22. East Florida.
It is possible that the weather wins the start again, just like on Wednesday. In this case, the next backup date is Sunday 31. May, 3 o’clock. Oriental. At the time of publication, the time was not yet known.
The countdown to departure is shown below. This countdown is based on the time published by NASA, which predicts 15:22 hours. Eastern launch on Saturday the 30th. Mei. If for some reason you cannot see the countdown in your browser, you can view it here.
Here is the departure time on Saturday in other time zones:
- 15:22 East
- 14:22 Central
- 13:22 Mountain
- 12:22. Pacific zone

This is the first human spaceflight since the Kennedy Space Center in nine years, NASA said. It is also the last step before NASA approves the dragon’s crew for long-term flights to the space station. After the launch, the crew of the Dragon will dock at the International Space Station and a return date will be set.
Some YouTube channels offer live streaming of the launch. Here’s one from NASA. As soon as this live stream is broadcast, a countdown timer is also launched in the top left corner of the video. This video starts at 11:00. East, but the launch won’t take place until 3:22. Oriental.
The story: Saturday the 30th. In May, NASA and SpaceX will launch the astronauts Robert Banken and Douglas Hurley to the International Space Station. The mission marks the first time since the failure of the space shuttle in 2011 that a man has flown from American soil to a space station. The first attempt to complete the mission on Wednesday the 27th. May, was approved due to weather conditions. The shooting starts at 11 a.m. EDTs such as NASA and SpaceX offer a joint live broadcast from launch to arrival at the space station. Teams target 15.22. EDT will launch the SpaceX Crew Dragon aboard Falcon-9 of the historic 39A launch complex at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Sunday the 31st. In May the crew of the Dragon is scheduled to dock at the space station. For more information about the mission: https://www.nasa.gov/launchamerica/2020-05-27T22:31:21Z.
It should be noted that time remains an issue of concern and that the launch may be compromised.
Now there is no weather decision for the test flight of the @SpaceX #CrewDragon spacecraft on Saturday. He’ll reconsider in the morning. #Launch America

Departure is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, May 27th. May was postponed due to three weather violations that required a cleanup.
A NASA representative agreed that three conditions had been violated, which had to be cleared during the launch. They were natural lightning, field mills and anvils. The time would have calmed down in 10 minutes, but the launch was immediate thanks to the necessary orbital mechanics that would have enabled the spacecraft to reach the space station in time.
The WTSP reported earlier on the day that launches will not take place within 10 nautical miles of a moving thunderstorm cloud, unless other criteria are met, and that launches will take place within 10 nautical miles of a moving thunderstorm cloud. The WTSP also noted that launches would not take place within 15 minutes if the field mill instruments reached more than +/- 1500 volts per metre within five nautical miles of the launch site, or +/- 1000 volts per metre if the specified criteria could be met.
NASA has assured Internet users that cleaning launches is a standard procedure.

This test flight is an important milestone in NASA’s commercial manning program to ensure safe transportation to and from the international space station.
The launch is known as Demo 2 and shows that SpaceX is capable of safely flying astronauts to and from the space station. Astronauts Bob Banks and Doug Hurley are flying today.
The SpaceX Dragon crew will launch aboard Launch Complex 39A’s Sokol-9 rocket in Florida for a long stay in the space station to carry out the Demo-2 mission. This is SpaceX’s last test flight and the first time NASA astronauts have tested the system in orbit.
After the dragon crew launches, it will accelerate the astronauts to 17,000 miles per hour to intercept the international space station, NASA said. Once in orbit, the crew will use manoeuvring thrusters and other tests to verify the accuracy of the dragon crew’s actions. About 24 hours later, the Dragon crew dock at the space station. After mooring, the crew becomes a member of the Expedition 63 crew and performs flight tests and research tasks at the space station. The crew of the dragon can stay in orbit for 110 days, but the exact duration of this mission is fixed. The crew of the Dragon, which will be deployed at a later date, will be able to remain in orbit for at least 210 days, in accordance with the requirements of NASA.
As soon as the expedition is completed, the crew of the Dragon, with the two astronauts on board, will leave and re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere, sprinkling the Atlantic coast of Florida. The SpaceX Go Navigator will pick up the Dragon’s crew and return to Cape Canaveral. The date of this part of the flight has yet to be determined.
This is the last step before NASA approves the dragon’s crew for long-term flights to the space station.
It’s also the first human spaceflight since the Kennedy Space Center in nine years, NASA said.
