KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. - Supplies are on the way to International Space Station after a successful launch by SpaceX on Saturday.
The Dragon's 26th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-26) mission lifted off at 2:20 p.m. ET from the Kennedy Space Center. The mission for NASA was rescheduled for Saturday after being scrubbed earlier this week because of bad weather.
The mission is filled with 7,700 pounds of cutting edge science and health experiments – one of those involves growing dwarf tomatoes! NASA previously grew leafy greens and this is the next step.
"The science would benefit humans on the ground and humans as they venture out into space for long duration human space travel."
Dragon is scheduled to arrive at the ISS at 7:30 a.m. ET on Nov. 27.
This is the 52nd launch from Florida's Space Coast this year.
