Watch Live: SpaceX Attempts Its First Deep-Space Mission

TIME

SpaceX is making its third attempt to launch its first deep-space mission Tuesday evening. If all goes well, the company’s Falcon 9 rocket will deploy a satellite that will eventually take up position almost a million miles from Earth, where it will watch for incoming solar storms.

Following the launch, founder Elon Musk hopes to land the Falcon on a floating barge off the Florida coast. SpaceX’s previous attempt to make that soft landing, which could dramatically reduce rocket launches’ cost, ended in a fiery crash.

Watch the launch , scheduled for 6:05 p.m E.T., live above.
