Update: Aaaaand the mission is scrubbed yet again.
Just this past weekend, SpaceX attempted to launch a massive rocket into space with the Deep Space Climate Observatory (or “DSCOVR”) satellite in tow.
Alas, the mission was scrubbed at the last second due to radar tracking issues. Then it got postponed again yesterday due to weather.
But fear not! They’re trying again. Right now, in fact. And you can watch it live here.
Update: As noted above, the launch has been cancelled again, once again due to bad weather.
The livestream should begin at 2:45pm PT, with lift-off scheduled for 3:05pm PT.
If successful, this mission will carry the NOAA Deep Space Climate Observatory weather satellite into the skies, where it’ll head for a point 930,000 miles from Earth. Once there, the satellite will help monitor and predict things like changes in ozone, cloud height, volcanic ash distribution, and more.
