SPACEX SPX 15 MISSION PATCH

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the 15th operational Dragon cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station on the company’s second mission under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services Program in 2018. Dragon SpX-15 is part of an extension to the original CRS-1 contract to bridge a gap to the second CRS contract round. The SpX-15 mission will carry the ECOSTRESS Instrument (Ecosystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station) and a spare Latching End Effector for Canadarm2 as external payloads. The Falcon 9 first stage will attempt a Return to Launch Site recovery via a powered landing in Cape Canaveral’s Landing Zone 1.
