SPACEX CRS-20 (SpX-20) CARGO LAUNCH TO ISS, Mar 6, 2020, CCAFS, 11:50 pm ET

(webcast)

Update, February 25:  The launch has been delayed to March 6 at 11:50 pm ET because SpaceX had to swap out the Falcon 9’s second stage.  Here is NASA’s statement.

SpaceX is now targeting March 6 at 11:50 p.m. EST for launch of its 20thcommercial resupply services mission (CRS-20) to the International Space Station. During standard pre-flight inspections, SpaceX identified a valve motor on the second stage engine behaving not as expected and determined the safest and most expedient path to launch is to utilize the next second stage in line that was already at the Cape and ready for flight. The new second stage has already completed the same pre-flight inspections with all hardware behaving as expected. The updated target launch date provides the time required to complete pre-flight integration and final checkouts.

NASA TV coverage will begin at 11:30 pm ET.  SpaceX also usually webcasts these launches.

Original Entry: SpaceX plans to launch its next Dragon cargo mission to the International Space Station, SpaceX CRS-20 (SpX-20) on March 2, 2020 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS), FL at 1:45 am ET.

These launches typically are webcast by NASA and SpaceX.
