A Long March 7 rocket carrying a robotic cargo ship rolled out to a pad at China’s Wenchang Space Launch Site on Saturday (May 7) for a planned flight to the country’s new space station. 

The Chinese rocket is carrying the Tianzhou 4 cargo ship, an automated supply ship that is expected to launch to China’s Tiangong space station core module Tianhe in the next few days. While the China National Space Administration has not publicly released a launch date, media reports have stated the mission could launch on Monday, May 9, at 2:15 p.m. EDT (1815 GMT), according to Spaceflight Now. That would be early May 10 Beijing Time.
