Perseverance is a big part of any mission, whether you’re launching a private spaceship into the black or trying to convince a privately owned space corporation to name the first manned version of that ship after the shiniest gorram spaceship in science-fiction history.
After a couple of scrubbed attempts, SpaceX is scheduled to launch the Dragon on its third resupply mission to the International Space Station today at 3:25pm EST. Live coverage of the launch begins at 2:45pm at http://www.spacex.com/webcast/. We’ll be watching (and tweeting) along with you as the Dragon breaks atmo and spreads her wings.
Here’s to a good Friday for a successful launch!
