Watch on NASA TV

Want to watch from home? NASA TV is available on most cable providers. Mission commentary will begin at 7:30 a.m. EST (4:30 a.m. PST).

The NASA TV Public, Education, and HD channels are "free-to-air," meaning your cable or satellite service provider can carry each at no cost. Contact your local cable or satellite service provider about carrying any NASA TV channel.

In continental North America, Alaska and Hawaii, NASA Television's Public, Education, Media and HD channels are MPEG-2 digital C-band signals carried by QPSK/DVB-S modulation on satellite AMC-3, transponder 15C, at 87 degrees west longitude. Downlink frequency is 4000 MHz, horizontal polarization, with a data rate of 38.86 MHz, symbol rate of 28.1115 Ms/s, and 3/4 FEC. A Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) compliant Integrated Receiver Decoder (IRD) is needed for reception.

You can also watch the launch online.
