On Saturday, May 4, SpaceX launched its seventeenth Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-17) at 2:48 a.m. EDT, from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. Dragon separated from Falcon 9’s second stage about 9 minutes after liftoff and attached to the space station on Monday, May 6.

The Dragon spacecraft supporting the CRS-17 mission previously supported the CRS-12 mission in August 2017. Following stage separation, SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship, which was stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

The Dragon will remain docked with the ISS for a month before returning. That will give the ISS crew plenty of time to unload all the supplies and experiments and then load it back up with anything that needs to be taken safely back to Earth before sending the capsule on its way home.
