Watch a time lapse replay of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket as it was raised upright at launch pad 39A in Florida on Saturday, a day before its scheduled launch with a top secret payload for the U.S. government’s spy satellite agency.
The 229-foot-tall (70-meter) rocket was stood up at the launch pad shortly after 8 a.m. EDT (1200 GMT) Saturday.
The Falcon 9 is set for launch Sunday from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center with a classified payload for the National Reconnaissance Office.
