(8:04 a.m.) – SpaceX and Vandenberg Air Force Base officials say the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket is on schedule.

Liftoff is set for 10:31 a.m. with a 30-minute launch window.

The rocket is carrying 64 payloads, making it the largest, single rideshare mission from a U.S.-based launch vehicle in history.

Monday’s launch will mark SpaceX’s third time launching the same booster.

After the stage separates from the rocket, SpaceX will try to land Falcon 9’s first stage on its droneship, “Just Read The Instructions,” which is floating in the Pacific Ocean.
