SPACEX MISSION PATCH CRS-2

The second operational cargo resupply mission to the

International Space Station

took place on March 1, 2013..The

Falcon 9 v1.0 was launched carrying 1,268 lbs of cargo for the astronauts aboard the ISS. Once in orbit, three of the four reaction control system thruster pods on the Dragon capsule needed to dock with the ISS failed to initially start up due to a low oxidizer pressure condition. Shortly afterwards,

SpaceX announced that the problem had been resolved and a stuck valve had been freed allowing full oxidizer pressure and normal thruster operation. The Dragon capsule berthed with the ISS on March 3.
