As long as the weather holds up, history will be made Wednesday when private space firm SpaceX will launch 2 NASA astronauts into space.  This will also mark the first time in nine years that American astronauts have launched from U.S. soil.  So far, the weather is 60% favorable for the launch to the International Space Station.

NASA astronauts have usually been hitching a ride aboard Russian Soyez rockets launching from Kazakhstan,but Wednesday’s launch from The Kennedy Space Center is set for 4:33pm EST.  If the weather doesn’t hold up, they’ll try again Saturday.
