Timeline for the Falcon 9 rocket’s 23rd flight – Spaceflight Now

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will go from Cape Canaveral to low Earth orbit in 10 minutes Friday with a Dragon capsule heading for the International Space Station carrying nearly 7,000 pounds of supplies and experiments.

Liftoff is set for 2043:32 GMT (4:43:32 p.m. EDT) Thursday from Cape Canaveral’s Complex 40 launch pad.

It will be the 23rd flight of a Falcon 9 rocket, and the third launch of the booster’s latest configuration with higher-thrust engines and densified super-cold propellants.

 

The launch will be the eighth of least 26 resupply missions under contract to SpaceX to depart for the space station.
