Watch Firefly Aerospace try to reach orbit for 1st time Monday


Firefly Aerospace will take one other crack at reaching orbit on Monday (Sept. 11), and you may watch it stay.

The Texas-based firm plans to launch its Alpha rocket on a check mission from California’s Vandenberg Space Force Base on Monday (Sept. 12) at 6 p.m. EDT (3 p.m. native California time; 2200 GMT). You can watch the liftoff through Firefly (opens in new tab) and its livestream companion, EverydayAstronaut.com (opens in new tab); Space.com will carry that webcast as properly, if attainable.
