Watch NASA Launch Their TDRS Satellite Into Orbit for Space Mission Communications at 9:05PM EST

If I typo TDRS as TRDS anywhere, sorry. I can't stop seeing TARDIS.

NASA’s TDRS satellites make up their space network (skynet?), which keeps all of NASA’s missions and important things like the Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station constantly in contact with all of the data they need to make space happen. You can watch them launch one right here at 9:05PM EST.
