New Yorkers and NASA fans looking for a bit of excitement during next Wednesdays spacecraft launch will be able to head into Times Square, where NASAs coverage of the launch will be broadcast over the twin screens beneath its famous New Years Eve ball. Three crewmembers — including one NASA astronaut — are scheduled to launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 11:14PM ET on November 6th. Theyll be heading to the International Space Station, which will be holding nine people once they arrive — something it hasnt done since October 2009. The space station serves as a unique laboratory for researchers around the world, home to astronauts from multiple countries, and was built with international cooperation, William Gerstenmaier, NASAs associate administrator for human exploration and operations, says in a statement, so its fitting to show the launch of the next crew in the most cosmopolitan city in the United States. Coverage of the launch will begin at 10:15PM and run through 11:45PM with some coverage after the launch.
