Launching a Dragon cargo spacecraft for NASA
The Dragon capsule will carry science experiments, hardware, and general supplies to support crews aboard the space station.
Cargo Dragon will remain docked at the Space Station for a few months.
The Dragon capsule will rendezvous with the ISS a few days after launch. Astronauts aboard the station will use the Canadarm2 to grapple Dragon and berth the capsule to the ISS. After departure, Cargo Dragon will undock, perform a de-orbit burn, and return experiments, scientific samples, and waste to NASA teams on Earth.
