At 7:10 PM EST tomorrow, the 16th of December, SpaceX will attempt to launch a Falcon 9 rocket bearing two Boeing-built communications satellites, one for Japanese JCSAT Corporation of Japan and Kacific of Singapore. The most recent weather projections as of this writing suggest a 90% chance of favorable launch conditions. Should the launch be delayed for other reasons, it will be delayed to the following evening, when weather will only have a 50% chance of cooperating.
Though the mission will target a geostationary orbit, the first stage will attempt a landing and recovery aboard Of Course I Still Love You.
Live coverage of the launch will be streamed from SpaceX’s YouTube channel, and from SpaceFlightNow.com.
