BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — SpaceX launched a Dragon cargo spacecraft from a Falcon 9 rocket Thursday afternoon from Cape Canaveral.
SpaceX originally scheduled a midday launch for 12:51 p.m. on Wednesday, but it was scrubbed due to upper altitude winds and wind conditions that would affect the droneship. They were able to launch successfully Thursday at 12:29 p.m.
The cargo spacecraft delivered supplies and equipment to the International Space Station.
