LIVE: NASA TV – Coverage of the launch of the SpaceX CRS-26 cargo Dragon resupply craft to the International Space Station

SpaceX’s CRS-26 cargo mission is now targeted to lift off at 19:20 UTC Saturday, Nov. 26 from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A Nov. 22 launch attempt was scrubbed due to poor weather conditions along Florida’s Space Coast. 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.
