This morning – on the 51st anniversary of the Apollo moon landing –, Jeff Bezos’ space company Blue Origin hopes to take its own leap for mankind.

At 9:00am EDT today, July 20, a New Shepard rocket will launch from the West Texas desert with four crew members aboard: Bezos, his brother Mark Bezos, 84 year old aviation legend Wally Funk, and 18 year old Oliver Daemen, whose father was the runner up in the multimillion dollar auction run last month to determine who would sit in the final seat. (The still anonymous winner of that auction paid $28 million for the spot but decided to reschedule due to schedule conflicts.)

How can you watch this launch, should you be so inclined? Whether you’re interested in the space industry or part of the petition to “keep Jeff Bezos in space,” here’s what you need to know.

In addition to national broadcast media in attendance, the primary way to watch the launch happen live is on the company’s website, BlueOrigin.com, through their livestream. The livestream is set to begin at 7:30am EDT and run through the duration of the flight. Hosted on Youtube, you can also set a reminder to watch:
