Welcome to your weekend! As we are looking at some decent weather here in our corner of the world today, some places are looking to blast out of this world.
There are two rocket launches planned for this weekend at Cape Canaveral. This morning at 8:00-a.m. local time an Atlas carrying the secret X-37 mini shuttle will launch, weather permitting.
Then early on Sunday a SpaceX launch carrying Starlink mini satellites is scheduled. As of now, the weather outlook is only about 40-percent acceptable for this morning’s launch so it remains unclear whether both launches will happen the same weekend as proposed.
Wishing you a safe and happy weekend, regardless of how you are planning to “launch” into it!
