Saturday at 4:45am ET – Launch of SpaceX Dragon rocket to ISS, and attempt at landing the first stage rocket on a boat! More info on the potentially historic launch at the SpaceX/NASA blog here. Info on the landing attempt here – which SpaceX says, “The odds of success are not great—perhaps 50% at best.”

The latest launch weather forecast, issued just this morning, continues to predict an 80 percent chance of favorable conditions for the liftoff of SpaceX CRS-5 at 4:47 a.m. EST tomorrow, Jan. 10. Meteorologists with the U.S. Air Force 45th Weather Squadron expect launch-time temperatures to be in the low 50s F, with the possibility of thick clouds posing the main concern.
