SpaceX is targeting Saturday, November 26 for Falcon 9's launch of Dragon's 26th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-26) mission to the International Space Station from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The instantaneous launch window is at 2:20 p.m. ET (19:20 UTC), and a backup launch opportunity is available on Sunday, November 27 at 1:58 p.m. ET (18:58 UTC).

Following stage separation, Falcon 9's first stage will land on the Just Read the Instructions droneship in the Atlantic Ocean. This is the first flight of the Dragon spacecraft supporting this mission.

Dragon will autonomously dock with the space station on Sunday, November 27 at approximately 7:30 a.m. ET (12:30 UTC).

MEDIA ADVISORY M22-177
NASA Updates Coverage for Next SpaceX Resupply Launch to Space Station

NASA and SpaceX now are targeting 2:20 p.m. EST Saturday, Nov. 26, to launch the company’s 26th commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station.

Live launch coverage will begin at 2 p.m., on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website. Follow all events at:

https://www.nasa.gov/live

The mission’s launch attempt on Nov. 22 was scrubbed due to poor weather conditions along Florida’s Space Coast.

Liftoff will be from Launch Complex 39A at the NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. SpaceX’s Dragon cargo spacecraft will deliver new science investigations, supplies, and equipment for the international crew.

The Dragon spacecraft will deliver a variety of NASA investigations, including the next pair of International Space Station Roll Out Solar Arrays (iROSAs), which will augment power to the orbiting laboratory. The spacecraft also will carry a study to grow dwarf tomatoes to help create a continuous fresh-food production system in space, as well as an experiment that tests an on-demand method to create specific quantities of key nutrients.

For a Nov. 26 launch, arrival to the station is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. EST on Sunday, Nov. 27. The Dragon spacecraft will dock autonomously to the forward-facing port of the station’s Harmony module.

The spacecraft is expected to spend about a month attached to the orbiting outpost before it returns to Earth with research and return cargo, splashing down off the coast of Florida.

The deadline has passed for media accreditation for in-person coverage of this launch. The agency’s media accreditation policy is available online. More information about media accreditation is available by emailing: [email protected]

Full coverage of this mission is as follows (all times Eastern):

Saturday, Nov. 26

2 p.m. – NASA TV launch coverage begins

2:20 p.m. – Launch

Sunday, Nov. 27

6 a.m. – NASA TV coverage begins for Dragon docking to space station

Approximately 7:30 a.m. – Docking

Coverage is subject to change based on real-time operational activities. Follow the International Space Station blog for updates.

NASA TV launch coverage

For downlink information, schedules, and links to streaming video, visit:

https://www.nasa.gov/nasatv

Audio only of the launch coverage will be carried on the NASA “V” circuits, which may be accessed by dialing 321-867-1220, -1240, or -7135. On launch day, the full mission broadcast can be heard on -1220 and -1240, while the countdown net only can be heard on -7135 beginning approximately one hour before the mission broadcast begins.

On launch day, a “tech feed” of the launch without NASA TV commentary will be carried on the NASA TV media channel.

NASA website launch coverage

Launch day coverage of the mission will be available on the NASA website. Coverage will include live streaming and blog updates beginning no earlier than 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26, as the countdown milestones occur. On-demand streaming video and photos of the launch will be available shortly after liftoff. For questions about countdown coverage, contact the Kennedy newsroom at 321-867-2468. Follow countdown coverage on our launch blog for updates.

Attend launch virtually

Members of the public can register to attend this launch virtually. Registrants will receive mission updates and activities by email. NASA’s virtual guest program for this mission also includes curated launch resources, notifications about related opportunities, and a virtual guest passport stamp following a successful launch.

Watch, Engage on social media

FWIW: There is a whole lot of "no go" red weather conditions right now ahead of NASA's SpaceX CRS-26 launch attempt from LC-39A at 3:54 p.m. ET this afternoon.

Is there a public link to see this weather status in real time?

With CRS-26 on hold until Saturday, support ship Bob and the SpaceX crew didn't seem to fancy waiting offshore and are sailing back to Florida.

However, JRTI droneship is staying the the LZ with tug Crosby Skipper for company until the next attempt.
