SpaceX Dragon Will Be Making Its Third Trip To The ISS On March 1st

NASA has that the SpaceX Dragon capsule will be making its third trip to the International Space Station.  The target date is March 1st, 2013 for the launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

At least this is positive news for Elon Musk, who has been dealing with a he-said/she-said situation between Tesla Motors and The New York Times.

The Dragon capsule successfully docked with the International Space Station last summer.  This was the first time that a private company accomplished such a feat.  SpaceX signed an agreement with NASA to fly 12 resupply missions to the International Space Station using the Dragon.  The Dragon can bring a significant number of supplies back to Earth from the ISS.
