Today, NASA is sending off the Juno spacecraft on a mission to study the origin of Jupiter. From NASA:
Juno is slated to blast off atop an unmanned Atlas 5 rocket at 11:34 a.m. EDT (1534 GMT) from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The forecast calls for a 70 percent chance of acceptable weather conditions for a Friday launch, NASA officials said, even though Tropical Storm Emily is making its way toward Florida’s Space Coast.
According to the countdown clock, the launch is happening a little earlier than projected, but never fear, you can watch a live stream of the launch right here.
