After a week of delays, SpaceX is scheduled to launch a resupply mission to the International Space Station Friday morning. The launch was originally scheduled for Dec. 4, and then for Tuesday and Wednesday but was postponed.

This launch will be the 13th resupply mission for NASA by the commercial cargo provider SpaceX. As of Thursday night, the launch was scheduled for 10:36 a.m. EST Friday, weather and conditions permitting. The weather was at 90 percent “go” for Friday’s scheduled liftoff about 24 hours prior, the NASA Kennedy Space Center Twitter account tweeted Thursday.

The nearly 4,800 pounds of cargo, including science experiments, like barley for future space beer and supplies the astronauts on the station need, will launch in a SpaceX Dragon capsule on a proven Falcon 9 rocket. A full calendar of coverage of the launch and grappling is available online. Despite the delays in the scheduled launches, the astronauts on board were in no danger of running out of any necessary supplies. 

This launch will be the first time that the company flies a used Dragon capsule as well as a used Falcon 9 capsule for NASA. The first stage of the Falcon 9 was previously flown for the CRS-11 mission that flew in June 2017, while the Dragon capsule was used for the CRS-6 mission in April 2015. A static fire test of the Falcon 9 was successfully conducted last week in preparation for the resupply launch from Launch Complex 40 at KSC.

About 10 minutes after launch, the Dragon craft should ideally detach from the second stage of the Falcon 9 before attaching to the ISS. The crew on the ISS will grapple the craft and attach it to the station using the 57.7 foot robot arm affixed to the station.

The Dragon capsule will stay at the ISS for about a month before the astronauts on board send it back to Earth. When it is returned to Earth, it will carry 3,600 pounds of cargo and it will take less than an hour for it to release from the station and reenter until it lands off the coast of California, according to SpaceX.

Visitors to the KSC Friday will also be able to view the launch that will lift off from Space Launch Complex 40 that hasn't been used since August 2016. It was damaged during a SpaceX rocket explosion in Sept. 2016 and has been in the repair process until now. The launch will be streamed live on both NASA and SpaceX’s websites as well as each of their YouTube channels and can be watched below.
