SpaceX Rocket Soars Across Florida Sky After Launch to Space Station

SpaceX’s Crew-6 mission for NASA took off from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, early Thursday morning, March 2, carrying four crew bound for the International Space Station (ISS).

Timelapse and real-time footage filmed by social media user @Mikecolesvids at Ormond Beach shows the rocket.

The SpaceX Crew-6 mission was carrying two NASA astronauts, one from the United Arab Emirates, and one Roscosmos cosmonaut.

Crew-6 was scheduled to arrive at the space station at 1:17 am Eastern Time on March 3.

The first attempted Crew-6 launch, on February 27, was scrubbed shortly before liftoff due to ground tech issues. Credit: @Mikecolesvids via Storyful
