A rocket launch is the perfect way to kick off Father’s Day. Lucky for you, Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos’ other company, Blue Origin, is launching its New Shepard rocket into space today.

This is the fourth time the rocket has launched — it’s reusable, just like the rocket from Elon Musk’s company SpaceX. But what’s different is that this is the first time that New Origin is broadcasting the launch live, rather than showing footage after the fact. You can see exactly what happens — at about 7:35 a.m. Pacific — at Blue Origin’s West Texas test site.

The plan is to put the rocket into the sky and land it safely. Let’s see if it can do that successfully.

Enjoy, and happy Father’s Day!
