Video: Time-lapse of Falcon 9 rocket raised for launch at pad 39A

SpaceX’s ground team hydraulically hoisted a 213-foot-tall (65-meter) Falcon 9 rocket vertical at pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center before dawn Monday ahead of a planned liftoff with a space station-bound robotic resupply craft.

Liftoff is set for 12:31 p.m. EDT (1631 GMT) Monday to begin a two-day pursuit of the space station with more than 6,400 pounds (2,900 kilograms) of experiments and supplies. Follow the launch live in our Mission Status Center.
