Spaceport LA Instagram Live Returns

Hello LA Space Community + Friends!

It's an exciting week for the space community in LA. Already this week, Virgin Orbit successfully released and ignited the LauncherOne rocket. Although the rocket experienced an anomaly early into the first-stage flight, the mission was terminated safely. SpaceX will be launching astronauts for the first time as part of their demonstration mission for NASA. You can watch it on NASA's YouTube channel starting at 9:15 AM PDT this Wednesday.

Spaceport LA is back again this week with an IG Live with STEM educator Dr. Samuel García Jr.
