SpaceX launched the Dragon capsule carrying cargo into space with the Falcon 9 rocket.
US-based space transportation company SpaceX successfully launched the Dragon capsule carrying cargo into space with the Falcon 9 rocket.
As part of the company’s 26th Commercial Resupply Services mission, CRS-26, the takeoff from the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Kennedy Space Center in Florida was carried out successfully.
While it was announced that the Dragon capsule, which carries approximately 4 tons of food and experimental materials, will dock with the Harmony module on the International Space Station, It Was Learned That The Astronauts On Duty At The Station Will Unload The Cargo, Including Tomato Seeds And Medical Imaging Devices In The Capsule.
If the CRS-26 mission is completed without any problems, it is expected to leave the station with the cargoes inside the reusable Dragon capsule and parachute into the sea off the Florida coast in early January.
The final launch within the scope of the CRS-26 mission was scheduled for 22 November, but the launch was postponed to a later date due to adverse weather conditions.
