Watch NASA’s SpaceX CRS-27 Cargo Mission Launch to the Space Station (Official NASA Broadcast)


SpaceX’s 27th cargo resupply mission (CRS-27) to the International Space Station is scheduled to lift off at 8:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, March 14 (0030 UTC March 15), from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

CRS-27 will carry supplies, equipment for our international crew, and science, including Space Station hardware designed by high school students, and research that could help fight heart disease.

Additionally, a pair of small satellites, called CubeSats, will hitch a ride to space on the mission. The two university-built satellites, named ARKSAT-1, created by students at the University of Arkansas, and LightCube, by Arizona State University with Vega Space Systems and Mexico’s CETYS Universidad. ARKSAT-1 will illuminate an LED from orbit and use a ground spectrometer to track and perform atmospheric measurements. LightCube features a flash bulb that can be controlled remotely by amateur radio operators on Earth who will be able to activate the satellite to produce a brief flash visible from the ground.
