SpaceX performs all pre-flight checkouts in order to enable tomorrow’s launch, as weather depart green lits “Launch America” event

The weather department of the United States of America green lights tomorrow’s big event. The 45th Space wing predicts a 60% chance for a clear sky tomorrow. This means the big NASA event of “Launch America” is a ‘GO!’. Before tomorrow’s launch, SpaceX will run preflight tests in order to fix functional difficulties if any arise. The space organizations are keeping no stones unturned for tomorrow’s historic moment.

However the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will be brought down to a horizontal position before running any tests. The team will also check the ground-side chilled water radiator feed line which helps keep the Crew Dragon capsule cool. The NASA SpaceX commercial crew program will commence its journey with the Demo 2 mission tomorrow. Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley are ready for liftoff at 4:33 P.M. EDT tomorrow (1:33 A.M. IST on May 28).
