Ready for More Launches?

There are THREE launches in the next couple of days!

We should have coverage for two of them.

SpaceX will be launching a Spanish satellite called Hispasat tomorrow morning or tonight depending on where you live.

Launch time is 05:33 UTC so join me with a cup of tea for this one. In the US the time will be 00:33 EST but on the US west coast it’s only 21:33 PST so tea might be out, but grab whatever and have a watch.

Those in Florida around the space coast or Cape Canaveral probably can watch live out the window.

Coverage should start 15 minutes prior to launch time. See you there.

As always replays will be shown here shortly after launch.

Also tomorrow there will be a Indian launch of a moon lander. Not sure about coverage.

Then on 21 March Expedition 55 will launch to the International Space Station from Soyuz MS-08 spacecraft to the International Space Station, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

NASA astronaut A.J. (Drew) Feustel and Ricky Arnold and cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev of the Russian space agency Roscosmos are scheduled to launch at 13:44.

The Soyuz SATELLITE launch scheduled for tomorrow has been moved to Friday at 16:37 UTC.
