Watch tonight as SpaceX tries to launch, then land a rocket in Florida

SpaceX is aiming for the history books.

The private spaceflight company is planning to land a segment of its Falcon 9 rocket back on a pad in Cape Canaveral, Florida, after it helps launch 11 satellites to orbit for the communications company ORBCOMM Monday night.

“If successful, this test would mark the first time in history an orbital rocket has successfully achieved a land landing,” SpaceX said in a statement.
