Spacex live launch uk time:Britons will be able to see a rocket hurtle across the sky at 9.50pm tonight - as long as rain doesn't halt the historic launch.
The Falcon 9, the first manned space flight to leave US soil in nine years, is set for blast off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 9.33pm BST (16:33 ET) this evening.
Elon Musk's SpaceX is sending the rocket to the International Space Station, marking the first time a
private company has put astronauts into space.
The Met Office has forecast clear skies for this evening, meaning the Falcon's ascent should be visible across the country. However, a storm in Florida means the rocket may not take off.
