Pres. Trump will be in Florida today to witness something we haven’t seen in almost a decade.
Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley are expected to blast off from Cape Canaveral to the International Space Station.
It will be the first time in nine years that astronauts have launched into space from U.S. soil and the first time ever that a private company is behind the launch, along with NASA.
Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will be at the Kennedy Space Center to view the launch, set for 4:33 p.m.
The weather had been at 60 percent for “go” conditions, but has since been lowered to 50/50 due to the storms coming off of what is now Tropical Storm Bertha, which is up in South Carolina.
If the launch doesn’t go off today, the next launch window is at 3:22 p.m. on Saturday.
