MISSION

The 20th commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station lifts off from Space Launch Complex 40 aboard a Falcon 9 rocket. The Dragon cargo spacecraft will deliver supplies and science investigations. This is the final mission under the original Commercial Resupply Services contract, but the success of the first lead to a second contract. The second Commercial Resupply Services contract will include Sierra Nevada in addition to SpaceX and Northrup Grumman (previously Orbital ATK).


LAUNCH VIEWING

Witness liftoff from Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex! Launch viewing opportunities may be offered from the main visitor complex or from viewing locations behind NASA’s gates that may require a Launch Transportation Ticket (LTT). The visitor complex may open launch viewing opportunities based on the launch’s public date and time. At this time, no LTTs are available for this launch. If offered, LTTs are sold as soon as possible after a confirmed date and time is publicized. If/when they are available, tickets may be purchased online under the VIP Launch Viewing tab on the Tickets page.


HELPFUL LINKS


Availability of upcoming viewing opportunities is dependent upon the scheduled launch time and is subject to NASA and U.S. Air Force approval. Launch date, time, and viewing opportunities are subject to change. Launches can be affected by technical and mechanical issues as well as range operations and weather, either in advance or at the last minute.
