SpaceX Launch Sends Supplies to Space Station
A space capsule carrying a 3D printer to make human tissue and nearly 2,270 kilograms of other science experiments and supplies is on its way to the International Space Station after a thunderous SpaceX launch.
The private company’s Falcon 9 rocket dodged threatening clouds in its Thursday, July 25, evening lift-off sending a Dragon capsule on its third trip to the orbiting outpost. The ship will dock with the station early Saturday.
Dragon is carrying science experiments, several of which concentrate on cellular science, as well as normal supplies. (AP)
