  • SpaceX Successfully Delivers Supply Shipment To ISS

NASA Astronauts Set To Get Sweet Treat With Next Delivery To International Space Station This week, a rocket bound for the International Space Station lifted off with 6,400 pounds of supplies. Its reusable rocket landed back at Cape Canaveral shortly after sending the Dragon into space.

"Gorgeous day, spectacular launch", said Dan Hartman, NASA's deputy manager of the space station program. This experiment, developed by the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Anatrace and Com-Pac International, will exploit the benefits of microgravity to grow larger, more perfectly-shaped LRRK2 crystals for analysis on Earth.

One of the things that makes today's launch particularly special is that it will be the last time NASA sends a brand new Dragon cargo craft to the ISS.

The Dragon is also doubling as an ice cream truck this time.

Dragon is scheduled to depart the space station in mid-September, returning more than 3,300 pounds of science, hardware and crew supplies to Earth.

Usually, astronauts eat dehydrated frozen treats when in space. USA astronaut Randolph Bresnik turns 50 next month.

The spaceship blasted off on Monday from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying food, science experiments and other gear for the astronauts aboard the space station.

"It's right on the bull's-eye, and a very soft touchdown", said SpaceX's Hans Koenigsmann. Delp says the study may help explain why female astronauts do not experience the problem. Scientists will study the pressure in the animals' eyes and how fluid moves in their brains. Sometimes the vision problem lasts long after spaceflight. Another experiment will collect data on cosmic rays.

The U.S. Army also put a small satellite on board to be released from the station this fall. It's about the size of a dormitory-room refrigerator. Fox is an actor who suffers from the disease.

Three Americans, one more than usual, and an Italian will tackle all this scientific work in orbit. Orbital ATK is the other; its next delivery is in November from Wallops Island, Virginia.

It was 13th supply shipment by SpaceX.

The mission marked the first re-flight of a Dragon capsule that had already flown to space once before.

SpaceX has also become an expert at recovering and reusing its Falcon 9 rockets. All three of the Falcon Heavy's first-stage boosters are meant to fly back to a touchdown.
