SpaceX Successfully Launches Cargo Mission to International Space Station
SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 rocket, complete with a Dragon cargo capsule for the International Space Station, on Friday from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The Dragon held 5,000 pounds of supplies and equipment for the station, including items like robotic legs and lettuce-growing experiments. This will make the third delivery from SpaceX's 12-flight, part of a $1.6 billion contract with NASA. The Dragon will also be the first to test a landing system that would allow it to be reused. It is expected to arrive on Sunday.
