SpaceX with 6,000 pound of re-supply mission launched to ISS

Dragon is scheduled to depart from the station in January 2019 and return to Earth with more than 4,000 pounds of research, hardware and crew supplies, NASA said.

Christmas turkey is rocketing toward the International Space Station, along with cranberry sauce, candied yams and the obligatory fruitcake.

Although, the Falcon 9 landed in the ocean, it was still close enough to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station for local residents to hear the double-sonic boom in nearby Cocoa Beach, Florida.

Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription.

Above all else, it's important to remember that the primary mission - sending Cargo Dragon to the ISS - continues to proceed nominally. The dismay was sidelined to the success of having the Dragon capsule- along with the 2.5kg of cargo delivery- in orbit. It marked the first time the same booster flew three separate missions. Shortly after the incident, Elon Musk tweeted that the booster seemed to remain undamaged.

Monday witnessed both a Soyuz rocket blasting three newcomers to the ISS and a Falcon 9 rocket taking 64 smallsats into orbit 310 miles (500 km) above Earth.

Despite this off-nominal recovery, Falcon 9 successfully placed Cargo Dragon into what John Insprucker deemed a highly accurate orbit, leaving the spacecraft to make its way to the International Space Station between now and Saturday. It was the first time a rocket has been used for a third time.

The mission got underway at 1:16 p.m. EST (GMT-5) when the Falcon 9's nine Merlin 1C engines ignited with a roar and a torrent of fiery exhaust, quickly pushing the 230-foot-tall booster away from launch complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Add that SpaceX's Falcon 9 Block 5 mostly meet the criteria of NASA for manned flights.

The launch was initially scheduled for Tuesday, but was delayed due to *checks note* moldy mouse food.

The Space Coast launch Wednesday will be SpaceX's 16th under the company's commercial resupply contract for NASA.

When the Dragon arrives, it will join five other spacecraft already at the station.

Astronaut Anne McClain, also from NASA, will monitor telemetry during the spacecraft's approach.
