SpaceX Launches 15th Resupply Mission for ISS

Dragon Spacecraft to return to earth with 4000 pounds of cargo following a one-month stay

On June 29, Falcon 9 successfully lifted for launch of its fifteenth Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-15) at 9:42:42 UTC, from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

The Dragon spacecraft lifted off on a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida with more than 5,900 pounds of research, equipment, cargo and supplies that will support dozens of investigations aboard the space station.

Dragon separated from Falcon 9’s second stage about nine minutes and thirty seconds after liftoff and went on its way to the International Space Station, expected to arrive early in the morning three days later.

Both Falcon 9 and the Dragon spacecraft for the CRS-15 mission are flight-proven. Dragon will return to Earth with more than 4,000 pounds of cargo after a one-month stay at the ISS.
