SpaceX is set to launch a Falcon 9 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Saturday morning, with a target liftoff time of 9:17 AM PST.

This is the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich Mission, which carries satellite of the same name made by the European Space Agency, NASA, and both U.S. and European meteorological monitoring bodies.

The Sentinel-6 is named for the former space scientist of NASA Earth Science Division Director Michael Freilich who has taken this position in between 2016 and 2019 and he passed away in August.

It’s one of two Sentinel-6-series satellites that will be launched for the program, with the Sentinel-6B set to join the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich sometime in 2025.
