SpaceX shared this stunning view of the awaiting launch of the Falcon 9.


SpaceX will convert one of its Falcon 9 rockets into the space equivalent of a crowded Uber van when it launches its Transporter-1 ride-sharing mission from Cape Canaveral in Florida on Saturday.

The payload for this mission includes an abundance of small satellites from government and commercial entities, along with 10 private SpaceX Starlink Satellite broadband.

We learned Thursday that the shipment will include 48 SuperDove satellites for Planet Labs, bringing the total to 133 satellites in one launch.

SpaceX itself has not yet confirmed the official number of satellites in its passenger load. There was some last-minute shift after two DARPA satellites accidentally happened Damaged earlier this month at the treatment facility. The Starlink satellites were also a last-minute addition. The payload includes several Nanoracks and Small Spacecraft More from the German Space Center (DLR)And the US Department of Defense and many others.

The launch was originally scheduled to take place in December, but has been postponed several times.

The enhanced Falcon 9 will make its fifth flight and is expected to land on a drone stationed in the Atlantic shortly after the flight. SpaceX will also likely try to retrieve the gift, or nose cone, a step that has become a routine part of every mission.

The launch is scheduled for 6:40 a.m. PDT (9:40 a.m. ET). The entire mission will be broadcasted as usual by SpaceX. You can follow up below starting around ten minutes before launch.
