Launching from Cape Canaveral in Florida, SpaceX's Cargo Dragon spacecraft will make its way to the ISS as part of the CRS-24 mission. The rocket will be carrying more than 6,500 pounds (2,948 kilograms), resupplying the station and its astronauts, as well as delivering new scientific projects. The launch is scheduled for 5:06 a.m. EST (10:06 UTC) on Tuesday, December 21st, 2021.

The Falcon 9 rocket will use the first-stage B1069-1, a brand new booster. The last brand new booster to be used by SpaceX was for the CRS-22 resupply mission in June 2021, using the B1067 booster. If the B1069-1 successfully lands on SpaceX's Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship (ASDS) 'Just Read The Instructions' roughly nine minutes after lift-off, it will mark SpaceX's 100th successful landing on a Falcon rocket booster.

You can watch the event live-streamed on SpaceX's YouTube channel, and NASA's.
