BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On Friday, June 29, Falcon 9 successfully launched its 15th Commercial Resupply Services mission at 5:42:42 a.m. EDT, from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

Dragon separated from Falcon 9’s second stage about nine minutes and 30 seconds after liftoff and is on its way to the International Space Station, currently expected to arrive early on the morning of July 2nd.

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.
