BREVARD COUNTY • CAPE CANAVERAL AIR FORCE STATION – SpaceX is targeting 12:51 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, for the launch of its Dragon spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft also will carry crew supplies and hardware to the orbiting laboratory to support the Expedition 61 crew for the 19th mission under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services contract.
The space station is a convergence of science, technology and human innovation that demonstrates new technologies and enables research not possible on Earth.
The orbiting laboratory has been occupied continuously since November 2000. In that time, more than 230 people, and a variety of international and commercial spacecraft have visited the orbiting laboratory.
The space station remains the springboard to NASA’s next great leap in exploration, including future missions to the Moon and eventually to Mars.
