SpaceX is currently preparing for the launch of its Falcon 9 rocket for the latest resupply mission of the Dragon capsule to NASA’s International Space Station (ISS). Those looking to watch the event may do so through a couple of live streaming options.

The event, dubbed as CRS-19, will serve as the 19th time SpaceX carried out a resupply mission to the ISS. It will also be the third time that the Dragon capsule will embark on the same journey. According to SpaceX, the Dragon spacecraft that will be used in CRS-19 is also the same capsule that was used in the CRS-4 and CRS-11 missions in 2014 and 2017, respectively.

SpaceX’s latest mission is set to officially kick off on Dec. 4 at 12:51 p.m. EST. It will be launched from the Space Launch Complex 40 at Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The company noted that the Dragon craft is expected to detach from the second stage of the Falcon 9 rocket around 9 minutes after liftoff.

Those who are hoping to catch the event can do so through a couple of live stream options. One of these is from SpaceX, which is scheduled to begin 15 minutes before the launch.

NASA will also live stream the event through its YouTube channel, which will begin at about 12:30 p.m. EST tomorrow.

Based on the latest weather conditions, which seem favorable, SpaceX will most likely proceed with the launch of the mission. Once the Dragon reaches the ISS, it will unload its payload, which is composed of various supplies and scientific experiments.

One of its payloads is a high-resolution imager from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. It was designed to allow astronauts to study the Earth’s surface from space, CNET reported. A brewing firm will also send its product samples to the ISS to test how space conditions can affect the malting of barley.

Aside from this 40 mice will be sent to the orbiting space station through the CRS-19 mission. These tiny animals will be part of an experiment that aims to identify the effects of staying in space for a long time on bones and muscles.
