UPDATE: Launch is likely to be pushed back another week due to more testing needed for the Dragon docking code.

UPDATE 2 – MAY 7th is set as the new launch date

The historic flight of the first commercial transport to the ISS is only one week from liftoff. SpaceX stands poised to make history next week if things go according to plan. Of course this is rocket science and things don’t always go to plan. The first challange comes with a single instantaneous launch opportunity at 12:22 p.m. EDT
After passing some significant evaluations on last weeks Flight Readiness Review another review will be held today one week prior to the targeted launch date on April 30.

Here at Rocketry blog we will be tracking information as it becomes available during this weeks preparations.
