CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – SpaceX launched of its 14th Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-14) on April 2 at 4:30 p.m.
The launch was from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Dragon separated from Falcon 9’s second stage about 10 minutes after liftoff and will attach to the space station on April 4. The Dragon Spacecraft will be filled with about 5,800 pounds of supplies, payloads and vehicle hardware, including materials to support investigations that will happen on board the space station’s orbiting laboratory.
On Wednesday, International Space Station crew members will use the station’s robotic arm to reach out and capture the Dragon spacecraft and attach it to its orbiting laboratory. After about one month at the International Space Station, Dragon will then return to Earth with more than 3,900 pounds of cargo.
Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported the CRS-12 mission in August 2017. Dragon supported CRS-8 mission in April 2016.
