Falcon 9 launch of CRS-17 Dragon mission (NASA) SpaceX successfully launched a Dragon cargo spacecraft to the ISS Saturday after delays caused by problems in space and at sea. A Falcon 9 lifted off at 2:48 am EDT (0648 GMT) from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral, Florida, and released the Dragon cargo spacecraft into low Earth orbit ten minutes later. The Dragon, carrying nearly 2,500 kilograms of cargo, is scheduled to arrive at the station May 6. The first stage of the rocket made a landing on a droneship just offshore. Problems with an electrical generator on the droneship scrubbed a launch attempt one day earlier, while the launch was postponed from earlier in the week to replace a faulty electrical unit on the station.
