…with over 250 science experiments and carge. This the 20th launch and completes the CRS-1 contract with NASA for SpaceX.
This launch is also a milestone for SpaceX because it is the 50th successful landing of a first stage booster back on land or a drone ship.
This booster landed back at Cape Canaveral at LZ-1 on March 6th 2020 eight minutes after launch which occured at 11:50 PM EST.
This is also the last time this cargo Dragon 1 spacecraft will ever fly again to the ISS. From now on they will use the crew rate capsule for humans or for cargo trips to the ISS.
It was a beautiful night time launch with moderate winds and congratulations to everyone at SpaceX and NASA for another successful launch
