The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, or TESS, is scheduled for liftoff at 6:32 p.m. with a 30-second launch window.
SpaceX launch delayed, rescheduled for Wednesday
The satellite known as Tess will survey nearly the entire sky, staring at the brightest, closest stars in an effort to find any planets that might be encircling them.
2 April space, the company performed a successful launch of the Falcon 9 rocket with the spacecraft Dragon, who managed to deliver to the ISS the 2.6 MT of cargo.
"Humans have wondered forever whether we were alone in the universe, and until 25 years ago the only planets we knew about were the eight in our own solar system", he told reporters on the eve of the TESS launch. The spacecraft is expected to identify thousands of planets orbiting nearby stars.
NASA's TESS mission hopes to find exoplanets beyond our solar system. The aging spacecraft is now low on fuel and near the end of its life.
Even in terms of sky-area coverage, TESS goes way beyond Kepler. They measure tiny dips in a star's brightness that could indicate a planetary body passing in front of the camera's line of sight.
Two hours before Monday evening's scheduled launch, SpaceX announced it needed more time to check its rocket, which will carry the satellite to orbit.

Jordaan said: "It is an old myth that Africa doesn't have the capacity and naysayers should stop using the political argument. Africa hosted the best FIFA World Cup ever and with good support, Morocco can emulate South Africa", said the SAFA president.
"TESS forms a bridge from what we have learned about exoplanets to date and where we are headed in the future", said Jeff Volosin, TESS project manager at NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center.
That said, it is worth noting TESS won't find life on any of these worlds.
