SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket Launches Resupply Mission to Space Station

SpaceX to launch cargo from Space Coast

Watch SpaceX launch its second used Falcon 9 rocket for NASA this afternoon

Just three days after sending 10 communications satellites into orbit from California, SpaceX is launching again, this time out of Cape Canaveral, Florida.

It's the second "refurbish-and-reuse" mission of its kind.

The nine-Merlin engine booster was first flown in August 2017 for CRS-12, while the Dragon capsule was sent on the CRS-8 mission back in April 2016.

There won't be a third go-round for this booster.

There is more than one way to watch the Falcon 9 lift off on Monday-both SpaceX and NASA are hosting feeds of the launch.

While no specific details were given and live coverage shown of the soft-landing, it's presumed that B1039 continued in the footsteps of water landings that followed GovSat-1 and Hispasat 30W-6 in January 2018 and March 2018. The Passive Orbital Nutrient Delivery System (PONDS) arriving on Dragon uses a newly-developed passive nutrient delivery system and the Veggie plant growth facility now aboard the space station to cultivate leafy greens. Astronauts will use the station's robotic arm to bring the Dragon in for its hookup, and start the process of unloading 5,800 pounds of payload. ASIM will focus on weird phenomena known as red sprites, blue jets and elves.

CRS contracts have revolutionized the way scientists conduct experiments aboard the ISS. On board the Dragon capsule are a number of new technologies for the ISS, including an instrument that will sit on the outside of the station to analyze thunderstorms on Earth and a research platform that will expose objects like tissues and plants to artificial gravity.

Something called Materials International Space Station Experiment (MISSE) will mount on the exterior of the space station to allow for experiments to be directly exposed to the harshness of space.

Another experiment making its way to space is the Comparative Real-time Metabolic Activity Tracking for Improved Therapeutic Assessment Screening Panels.
