SpaceX ready to return to the space station – Spaceflight Now
Ground crews loaded time-critical experiments, including 20 mice to help scientists study muscle atrophy, into SpaceX’s commercial Dragon cargo capsule Thursday, a day before a launch planned from Cape Canaveral toward the International Space Station.
The last-minute additions to the Dragon spacecraft’s pressurized cabin also include fresh food and other goodies for the space station’s six-man crew. The rocket will be rotated vertical on its launch pad overnight.
Liftoff is set for 4:43:32 p.m. EDT (2043:32 GMT) from Cape Canaveral’s Complex 40 launch pad, roughly the moment the plane of the space station’s orbit passes over the Central Florida rocket facility.
