NASA astronauts will try again to blast off to the International Space Station Saturday afternoon, after inclement weather scrubbed a launch Wednesday. If successful, Saturday’s takeoff will mark the first crewed space mission since the shuttle program was retired in 2011.

The second attempt at launch is currently scheduled for 3:22 pm Eastern. However, for the event to proceed as planned, weather needs to be clear both at Kennedy Space Center in Florida and all along the ocean pathway where the astronauts would have to splash down in case of an emergency.
