The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida Aug. 14, sending an unpiloted Dragon cargo vehicle on a delivery run to the International Space Station. Loaded with more than three tons of supplies and scientific investigations, the Dragon is scheduled to arrive at the station on Aug. 16 where it will be captured by Expedition 52 crewmembers Jack Fischer of NASA and Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency operating the station’s Canadarm2 robotic arm. Dragon will spend about a month attached to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module.
