European launch provider Arianespace will loft two communications satellites on Friday (July 30), and you can watch it live here.
Liftoff is targeting a window from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. EDT (2100 to 2230 GMT) and will occur at Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. A live broadcast of the launch will be begin at 4:10 p.m. EDT (2010 GMT), and you can watch it in the window above, courtesy of Arianespace.
Today's launch marks the first flight of the Ariane 5 rocket in nearly a year after two 2020 launches experienced nose cone issues. Both missions were successful, but Arianespace decided to review the situation in detail before putting more payloads on the rocket.
The launch will be particularly closely monitored because Ariane 5 is due to launch the long-awaited James Webb Space Telescope this fall.
Watch live Tuesday @ 1:20 p.m. ET: Boeing Starliner OFT-2 mission launches
NASA and Boeing had been targeting a launch on Friday (July 30) of the uncrewed OFT-2 test flight of the new Starliner crew capsule. However, a situation on the International Space Station on Thursday (July 29) prompted a delay.
NASA officials have said the next available launch opportunity is on Tuesday (Aug. 3) at 1:20 p.m. EDT (1720 GMT), but the agency has not yet provided a new schedule for coverage of launch, docking (likely the next day) and hatch opening (likely the day after that).

'ISS Live!' Tune in to the space station
Find out what the astronauts and cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station are up to by tuning in to the "ISS Live" broadcast. Hear conversations between the crew and mission controllers on Earth and watch them work inside the U.S. segment of the orbiting laboratory. When the crew is off duty, you can enjoy live views of Earth from Space. You can watch and listen in the window below, courtesy of NASA.
"Live video from the International Space Station includes internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times. The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control. This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground. During 'loss of signal' periods, viewers will see a blue screen.
"Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it experiences a sunrise or a sunset about every 45 minutes. When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below."
