SpaceX launches a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Thursday night. The rocket will boost into orbit an Indonesian communications satellite, a small experimental satellite for the Air Force, and an Israeli lander that will spend the next two months traveling to the Moon.

If it goes out successful, the $100 million mission will become the fourth nation in space history to pull off a powered landing on the moon, after the United States, the Soviet Union, and China.

The launch is scheduled for 8:45 p.m.
