Watch SpaceX Live Video of Transporter-7 Mission

Save it!

The SpaceX logo fades away to reveal a control room as the pad is called clear and the countdown begins. Falcon 9’s launch of the Transporter-7 mission to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) is at the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.

The first stage booster supporting this mission was previously launched by Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich, DART, and seven Starlink missions. Following stage separation, Falcon 9 will land on Landing Zone 4 (LZ-4) at Vandenberg Space Force Base.

Transporter-7 is SpaceX’s seventh dedicated smallsat rideshare mission. There will be 51 payloads on this flight, including CubeSats, MicroSats, hosted payloads, and orbital transfer vehicles carrying spacecraft to be deployed at a later time. A live webcast of this mission began about 10 minutes prior to liftoff.

With 28 seconds left in the countdown, the call was made to abort the launch.
