Watch live coverage as SpaceX launches a Falcon 9 rocket with 23 second-generation Starlink internet satellites. Liftoff from pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center is scheduled for 9:25 p.m. EDT (0125 UTC) on Wednesday, Mar. 13. The first-stage booster, making its 19th flight, will land on the drone ship 'A Shortfall of Gravitas about eight and a half minutes into the flight. The mission, designated Starlink 6-43, will be the 25th Falcon 9 launch of the year.

Last night's Falcon 9 (Starlink 6-44) here in Florida (previous post) was delayed until tonight.

Starship Orbital Flight Test 3 however went up this AM at Starbase, Boca Chica Beach, Texas:

Elon Musk’s SpaceX prepares to launch its third Starship test flight from Texas after receiving the OK from the Federal Aviation Administration. Last year’s two test flights lasted minutes before blowing up over the Gulf of Mexico. SpaceX plans a shorter, hourlong flight on the latest demo. NASA needs Starship to succeed in order to help land astronauts on the moon in the next two or so years.


Signal lost on the booster landing....said not all the raptor engines fired and they lost the booster.....at 1100 KMPH & 0 altitude on the telemetry not surprising. Stay tuned....

Watch live as a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta 4 Heavy rocket flies for the final time Liftoff from Space Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station is scheduled for 2:03 p.m. EDT (1803 UTC) on Thursday, March 28. The three-core liquid hydrogen fueled rocket is carrying a top secret payload for the U.S. military's spy satellite agency, the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).

Our live coverage from Cape Canaveral, with commentary by Will Robinson-Smith, will begin about 90 minutes prior to launch. It will be the 16th launch for the Delta IV Heavy rocket.



Not sure if weather will allow this one to fly today but we'll see........
