SpaceX launches 25th Dragon cargo mission to space station

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida this evening (July 14), sending a robotic Dragon resupply craft toward the International Space Station (ISS).

The mission, known as CRS-25, lifted off tonight at 8:44 pm EDT (0044 GMT on July 15) from KSC’s Launch Complex 39A. The two stages of the Falcon 9 separated 2.5 minutes into flight. As the rocket’s second stage propelled Dragon into orbit, the main booster began its return to Earth, safely landing on SpaceX’s A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship in the Atlantic Ocean about 7.5 minutes after launch.
