Will you see the upcoming rocket launch? 🚀 👀
The Black Brant XII, carrying the KiNET-X payload, is a four-stage sounding rocket that can reach altitudes more than 200 miles above Earth's surface. Because of this, weather permitting, the eastern U.S. states have a chance to see the rocket passing over when the window opens May 7.
The KiNET-X launch is currently scheduled for May 7. The window opens at 7:58 p.m. EDT. Backup days run through May 16. We're keeping a close eye on the weather, so check back for updates: https://go.nasa.gov/3eTTCH5
