SpaceX to send supplies, research to space station this week

Hawthorne, California-based rocket company SpaceX is scheduled to launch its Dragon cargo capsule to the International Space Station May 3, but it made a change to its booster’s landing location after an incident that damaged its Crew Dragon capsule.

SpaceX will send more than 5,500 pounds of of research, supplies and hardware to crew members living and working on the International Space Station. SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Launch Complex 40 at 3:11 a.m. That’s not a typo, by the way. It is a very early morning launch. Read more here.
