KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. – SpaceX on Sunday will attempt to launch the CRS-SpX28 mission from Kennedy Space Center, sending a Cargo Dragon 2 capsule laden with supplies to the International Space Station.

The Falcon 9 launch is SpaceX’s 28th commercial resupply mission — scheduled for 12:12 p.m. at Launch Complex 39A — and was originally set for Saturday, but was delayed amid a forecasted 30% shot at experiencing favorable weather.

The 45th Weather Squadron expects the mission to have a 40% shot at favorable weather at launch time, 60% in a 24-hour delay and 90% after 48 hours. Midday showers and storms from Arlene will present the primary weather concern for this launch.

CRS-SpX28 is set to launch just hours after Starlink 6-4, which begins its flight attempts from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 40 at 5:56 a.m.
