NASA’s SpaceX Crew-3 mission is now set to lift off on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 9:03 p.m. EST (02:03 UTC, Thurs.) from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. NASA and SpaceX continue to review launch opportunities and monitor weather conditions. Live coverage is tentatively scheduled to begin at 4:45 p.m. EDT.
Astronauts Kayla Barron, Raja Chari, and Thomas Marshburn of NASA will fly to the International Space Station alongside astronaut Matthias Maurer of the European Space Agency. Once there, the crew of four will spend about six months conducting science experiments and performing maintenance upgrades aboard the orbiting laboratory. For Barron, Chari, and Maurer, this will be their first spaceflight, and the third for Marshburn.
