SpaceX launches 25th Dragon cargo mission to space station

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

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