NASA’s Lucy asteroid mission has good weather for Saturday launch. Here’s how to watch live.


CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA’s newest planetary science mission, an asteroid-observing probe named Lucy that will fly by a record eight different asteroids, is ready to launch and you can watch the action live online.

Lucy and its rocket are on the pad, after rolling out from their hangar on Thursday (Oct. 14). The duo, which stands 188-feet-tall (57.3 meters), is targeting an early morning liftoff on Saturday (Oct. 16) at 5:34 a.m. EDT (0934 GMT) from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida atop a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket. Currently, with two days until liftoff, the weather forecast suggests just a 10% chance that poor conditions will interfere with launch.
