CRS-13 Dragon Resupply Mission Mission Overview SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will launch a Dragon spacecraft to low-Earth orbit to deliver critical cargo to and from the International Space Station for NASA. SpaceX is targeting launch of its thirteenth Commercial Resupply Services mission CRS-13 from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. The instantaneous launch window is on Tuesday, December 12 at 11:46 a.m. EST, with a backup launch opportunity on Wednesday, December 13 at 11:24 a.m. EST, Dragon will separate from Falcon 9’s second stage about 10 minutes after liftoff and attach to the space station on December 15. Both Falcon 9 and the Dragon spacecraft for the CRS-13 mission are flight-proven. Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported the CRS-11 mission in June 2017 and the Dragon spacecraft previously supported the CRS-6 mission in April 2015. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage will attempt to land at SpaceX’s Landing Zone 1 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.
