NASA Sends New Research, Hardware to Space Station on SpaceX Mission

12.05.2018 - SpaceX Dragon spacecraft launches to the International Space Station on a Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The spacecraft, on its 16th mission for NASA under the agency’s Commercial Resupply Services contract, carries more than 5,600 pounds of research equipment, cargo and supplies. Aboard the spacecraft is the Robotic Refueling Mission-3 (RRM3), which will demonstrate the first transfer and long-term storage of liquid methane, a cryogenic fluid, in microgravity.
