SpaceX and NASA are hoping to launch the Crew Dragon Capsule from Cape Canaveral at 9:03 PM Eastern and you can watch the livestream here using the company’s YouTube Channel, Via SpaceX Website Or NASA TV. Live coverage begins at 4:45 PM ET.
This is an instant launch window, so any errors or weather issues will prompt officials to delay the Crew-3 liftoff to “backup” at 8:40 PM ET on 11 November night. SpaceX and NASA have pinned previous pitfalls on the weather, a small crew medical problem and the crew-2’s (since its success) aspiration to make way for a comeback.
This is SpaceX’s fifth crude spaceflight. If all goes well, Mission Commander Raja Chari and crew members Tom Marshburn, Kayla Baron and Matthias Maurer (after ESA) will dock with the International Space Station on November 11 at 7:10 pm ET. They will conduct science and otherwise participate in station activities until April 2022.
