SpaceX Dragon To Meet International Space Station After Launching April 30th

Posted Apr 17, 2012

The Dragon is a reusable spacecraft that was developed by SpaceX. During the Dragon’s maiden flight in December 2010, it had become the first commercially built and operated spacecraft ever to be recovered successfully from orbit. SpaceX will be launching the Dragon on April 30th and will reach the International Space Station a few days later. The Dragon will ride on the company’s Falcon 9 rocket and will launch from Cape Canaveral a little bit after noon EST. There will be a live video feed of the launch on NASA TV at 11AM.
