It’s been years in the making, but the Naval Postgraduate School’s own NPSAT1 is mounted and ready to launch on board SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy, June 24, from Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39A.

The launch – the third for the Falcon Heavy and the first at night – will be broadcast live on NASA Live on Monday, June 24 at 8:00 p.m., with a scheduled launch time of 8:30 p.m.
