[Photo: courtesy of Cliff Lipson/CBS] The 72nd annual Tony Awards will be a trip down memory lane for ’90s kids, as the Broadway iterations of Mean Girls, SpongeBob Squarepants, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are all up for prizes. Broadway’s biggest night takes place on Sunday, June 10, with ceremony kicking off at 8 p.m. ET (and PT thanks to a time delay). The awards show will be co-hosted by Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles from Radio City Music Hall (seats are still available!), but if you can’t make it to New York City and want to see if the Mean Girls stage a meet-up in a pineapple under the sea or if there’s a horcrux hidden in a Krabby Patty, you’re going to want to tune in.

SpaceX will launch two new Earth-observing satellites for NASA and five commercial communications satellites today (May 22) in a sort of carpool mission to space. SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will tote two satellites that are part of NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On (GRACE-FO) mission, as well as five more Iridium Next communications satellites, when it takes off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 3:47 p.m. EDT (1947 GMT). You can watch the launch live at NASA TV, starting at 3:15 p.m. EDT (1915 GMT), courtesy of a NASA TV webcast. The Falcon 9 rocket booster that will take the seven satellites to the stars is the same one that launched the U.S. Air Force’s classified Zuma mission in January, a mission that was lost, although SpaceX is reportedly not to blame. The satellites for the GRACE Follow-On mission, a joint project between NASA and the GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences, will map changes in … [Read more...] about SpaceX live stream: How to watch the Earth-observing NASA satellites blast off
Well, if you thought awards season ended with the Oscars in March, you were sorely mistaken. Let’s not forget that the Tonys, the BET Awards, and the CMT awards are all set to air in the next few weeks. But first up, we have the Billboard Music Awards, which take place on Sunday, May 20, at 8 p.m. ET, and will air live on NBC from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
