SpaceX, NASA ready for historic astronaut launch

NASA and SpaceX are ready to launch two astronauts into space from the Kennedy Space Center Wednesday, and have begun final pre-flight checks. This is the first manned orbital mission in nearly a decade, and the first using a privately owned and operated spacecraft. Officials said the weather forecast is currently 60% favorable for the launch, which is scheduled for Wednesday at 4:33pm ET.
