Watch Live: SpaceX Launches NASA ‘Three-Eyed Raven’ Into Space

February 18, 2017, 1:45 PM UTC

SpaceX is scheduled to launch a piece of NASA technology into space Sunday that will test out a new type of navigation system, after delaying the mission a day.

The module, dubbed the “three-eyed Raven” (a nod to the bird from Game of Thrones) is a step toward NASA’s hope of building satellites that will be able to refuel and fix other space probes, the Verge reports.

The three-eyed Raven, which is being launched on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, is going to test out a new navigation system that could more precisely direct satellites in space, potentially with enough precision that a repair satellite would be able to autonomously maneuver over to the other satellites in need.

The launch is scheduled for 9:39 am E.T. from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. You can watch it live above.
