NASA to live-stream resupply mission to International Space Station

The next commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station will be viewable by anyone.

NASA said the mission with its partner Orbital ATK will likely launch at 8:03 p.m. EDT Sunday, Oct. 16. The launch takes place at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The website will begin airing it live at 7 p.m., according to a news release .

The resupply mission is postponed to Sunday due predictions that Tropical Storm Nicole will become a hurricane and reach Bermuda on Thursday. Bermuda is part or the spacecraft's trajectory path, NASA said.

NASA TV will also air two pre-launch broadcasts on Saturday, Oct. 15. Scientists will discuss some of the investigations to be delivered to the space station.
