SpaceX launches the 25th Dragon cargo mission to the space station

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida this evening (July 14) and sent a robotic Dragon supply ship to the International Space Station (ISS).

The mission, known as CRS-25, lifted off from KSC’s Launch Complex 39A at 20:44 EDT (0044 GMT on July 15) tonight. The two stages of falcon 9 2.5 minutes flight time separately. As the rocket’s second stage placed Dragon into orbit, the main engine began its return to Earth, landing safely on SpaceX’s A Shortfall of Gravitas drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 7.5 minutes after launch.
