If you want to go old-school, you can also call in to one of NASAs three phone numbers — 321-867-1220, 321-867-1240, and 321-867-1260 — which are all playing the countdown and live commentary.

The space agency also has a number that features no-commentary, voice-only audio from the astronauts: 321-867-7135. (Each line has limited capacity for callers, so if you can’t connect, try NASA’s YouTube feeds instead.)

SpaceX is launching Behnken and Hurley to the International Space Station, where they are expected to stay for 110 days.

This would be the US’s first crewed spacecraft launch since the end of NASA’s space shuttle program in 2011. Since then, NASA has been buying seats for its astronauts on Russian Soyuz spacecraft. A successful launch would also mark the first time humans have flown on a commercially made spaceship.

The Crew Dragon spacecraft and this launch are the product of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, a partnership between the space agency and two private companies — SpaceX and Boeing — to build human-ready spaceships that can ferry astronauts to and from the space station.
