KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. – SpaceX announced that it is planning to launch its Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station on Thursday night.

According to the company, the rocket will carry the Dragon spacecraft’s 29th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-29) mission to the ISS from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

SpaceX officials said that the target launch time is 8:28 p.m., though a backup opportunity will be available on Friday at 8:05 p.m.

This is expected to be the second flight for the first-stage booster used in this mission, which previously launched Crew-7. This will also be the second flight for the Dragon spacecraft, which previously flew CRS-26 to the ISS.
