BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – SpaceX successfully launched its eighteenth Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-18) from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) on Thursday at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

Falcon 9 lifted off at 6:01 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 25.

Dragon separated from Falcon 9’s second stage about nine minutes after liftoff and attached to the space station on Saturday.

The Dragon spacecraft supporting the CRS-18 mission previously supported the CRS-6 mission in April 2015 and the CRS-13 mission in December 2017. Following stage separation, SpaceX recovered Falcon 9’s first stage on Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

The company’s Dragon spacecraft delivered supplies and critical materials to directly support dozens of the more than 250 science and research investigations that will occur during Expeditions 60 and beyond.
