SpaceX launches 14th Space Station resupply mission

SpaceX to launch cargo from Space Coast

SpaceX Satellite Orbiting Earth

The Dragon has also been tasked with bringing cargo back to Earth when it leaves the space station in May, The Verge noted. The mission's Falcon 9 first-stage rocket was previously used on the CRS-12 mission in August 2017.

2018 has already been incredibly busy for Elon Musk's SpaceX, but the launch schedule isn't slowing down yet.

The SpaceX Dragon spacecraft launched last night (Monday 2 April) from Florida on a Falcon 9 rocket carrying cargo that showcases the ingenuity of the United Kingdom space sector.

"Reusability is really important for the future of spaceflight", she said.

Kawhi Leonard Has Returned To New York For Rehab
The Kawhi Leonard-San Antonio Spurs saga has continued to unfold as the regular season slowly comes down to an end. Wojnarowski reported that Leonard planned to play in San Antonio's game on March 15, but that plan was aborted.

Still, the intent alone demonstrated that SpaceX believed it could potentially land a Falcon 9 first stage despite the considerable mass of the satellite, effectively a 15% capability upgrade that would allow SpaceX to recover boosters after all but a tiny proportion. While the booster stuck an upright landing at SpaceX's "Landing Zone 1" at Cape Canaveral after its first launch, SpaceX did not attempt to land the booster today.

Science experiments being hurled toward the station include new ways of looking at severe thunderstorms; seven new containers to grow plants that could one day feed astronauts en route to deep space; and studying pathogens through the use of fruit flies, to name a few of the more than 50 experiments that will be impacted by CRS-14. After the spacecraft has been captured, NASA TV will resume live coverage of its installation in the Harmony module at 8:30 a.m. EDT (1230 GMT). It takes about 30 minutes for Dragon to reenter the Earth's atmosphere and splash down in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Baja California. Expedition 55/56 crewmembers will therefore have about a month to unload and repack the Dragon before its scheduled departure. These projects range from a test bed for growing plants to the new Veggie PONDS experiment for passive nutrient delivery. They've also issued a second contract to run from 2019 to 2024.

The capsule will be transporting NASA's old Robonaut 2, a humanoid robot in need of repairs, which the space agency hopes to fix before relaunching back to the station.
