If all goes as planned, SpaceX — the private space exploration company headed by Tesla chief Elon Musk — will launch two rockets in just two days, June 24 and 25, 2017.

SpaceX is scheduled to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base Thursday morning after it was scrubbed Wednesday due to windy conditions.

The rocket is scheduled to launch at 6:17 a.m.

Falcon 9 is carrying three satellites. One belongs to a Spanish company and can deliver high resolution images of earth even in high clouds. The other two satellites are the first in what SpaceX hopes will eventually be a global internet network.

If the rocket launches at its scheduled time, you’ll most likely see it at home.a
