Watch live now! SpaceX to launch 1st astronaut mission for NASA

SpaceX’s Demo-2 mission will attempt to launch its first crewed mission for NASA today, May 30, at 3:22 p.m. EDT (1922 GMT) after bad weather thwarted its first liftoff attempt. 

Demo-2 marks the first launch of NASA astronauts on an commercial spacecraft and the first launch of American astronauts into orbit on a U.S.-built vehicle from America since 2011. The weather forecast for Saturday calls for a 50% chance of good launch conditions.
