A spacecraft launch is well worth a few vacation days. That being said, anyone who can't make it to see Spacex's first resupply mission from Cape Canaveral, Florida to the International Space Station, you can still watch it in real-time online. Inside the craft will be 7,000 lbs of supplies—varying from Chinese cabbage to mice, according to the International Business Times.

For now, watching this history happen is the closest we onlookers can get to actually exploring space. NASA will beging to livestream the event at 3:30 EDT, with the launch opportunity window opening up at 4:43 EDT. Tune in below:
