NASA says SpaceX will target Saturday for the launch of its next space station resupply mission from Cape Canaveral Air Station in Florida.
The Falcon 9 launch is set for 4:47 a.m. ET Saturday. Watch it live on NASA TV .
A problem with an upper stage steering system actuator flared up during a countdown Tuesday, causing the launch scheduled that day to be aborted. There will be live coverage on SpaceFlight Now.
Writes Alan Boyle at NBC,
If SpaceX lands the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket on an oceangoing drone ship after sending a Dragon cargo capsule to the International Space Station, the feat will mark one giant leap toward an era of rocket reusability in which space launches could be much more like airplane take-offs. However, the leap builds upon many small steps — and missteps — that have been taken over the course of decades. And it'll take many more giant leaps to get to a true rocket revolution.
