Launch Day 1

If all goes well today will be the first of two launches to the International Space Station  this week, today and Thursday.

Today it is the launch of the Orbital ATK and the S.S John Glenn cargo ship for a resupply mission to the ISS.  This will be Orbital’s seventh mission to the ISS.

Launch time is set for 15:11 UTC / 11:11 EDT and there is a 90 percent chance for favorable weather.  Be sure to come back for the launch which will be live, and could be one of those 360 degree videos where you can move the mouse around.  If it works.  This is the first time this type of video has been tried.

You probably noticed the “S.S John Glenn”, this spacecraft has been named in the late John Glenn’s honor.

The video will post about 15 minutes before launch.
