Ready or Not, Here We Come

Tomorrow we will see the start of a historic mission, the Parker Solar Probe.

Launch time: 07:33 UTC / 03:33 EDT from Cape Canaveral in Florida, USA.

Spaceport: Cape Canaveral, Florida

Launching rocket: United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy

There will be a live link about a half hour before launch (07:00 UTC / 03:00 EDT). If you miss it come back a bit later as the live feed will be replaced with replays).

Also, so far there are no issues working that would delay launch but that possibility ALWAYS exists.

The image above is from the Solar Dynamics Laboratory taken yesterday (NASA/SDO). The Sun has been very quiet in terms of sunspots.
