SpaceX launches resupply mission to ISS

HAWTHORNE — Hawthorne-based SpaceX launched a resupply mission to the International Space Station early Saturday, May 4, in an operation that was delayed just a few days due to electrical points.

“Dragon is on its way to the International Space Station! Capture by the @Space_Station crew set for early Monday morning,” the company tweeted Saturday.

The Falcon rocket, which lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Fla., carries a Dragon capsule with 5,500 kilos of offers, and is due to arrive on the orbiting lab Monday.

The booster was recovered on a ship merely offshore.

It was SpaceX’s 17th resupply mission to the home station.
