BREVARD COUNTY, FL – SpaceX has scheduled a Falcon 9 rocket launch for Tuesday, August 9 from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

The launch is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.

The 45th Weather Squadron says the latest weather report shows conditions will be 70% favorable for Tuesday’s rocket launch. The biggest concern is the rule of the Cumulus cloud on Tuesday.

The mission will carry another batch of Starlink satellites.

The Falcon 9 first stage thruster will attempt to land on a drone in the Atlantic Ocean.

Falcon 9 is a reusable two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of people and payloads to Earth orbit and beyond. Falcon 9 is the world’s first orbital-class reusable rocket.

Reusability allows SpaceX to re-fly the most expensive parts of the rocket, which in turn lowers the cost of accessing space.

Launch coverage can be seen on Space Coast Daily TV.
