Space-X and Vandenberg Air Force Base officials are getting ready to launch a rocket next week.
Space-X CEO Elon Musk tweeted a photo of the Falcon-9 launch preps underway at SLC 4-E.
Musk said he was at the base Wednesday.
This will be the first time a Falcon-9 rocket will take off from the base.
The launch is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 14.
They'll be sending a cassiope satellite for the Canadian Space Agency into orbit.
