Coming Attractions

The marquee inside the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is running a five-panel announcement of the upcoming SpaceX launch on April 30.

Here are each of the images:

SpaceX Dragon to Space Station.

The next SpaceX Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) demonstration flight will be to the International Space Station.

Launch now targeted for Monday, April 30th, at 12:22 p.m. EDT.

The test flight for the SpaceX Dragon cargo freighter will link up with the International Space Station, allowing the company to combine the two previously planned flyby and capture missions into one.

"The primary driver for the schedule continues to be the need to conduct extensive software testing. This is a challenging mission and we intend to take every necessary precaution in order to improve the likelihood of success."
