SpaceX Dragon Delivers Cargo for 19th ISS Commercial Resupply Mission - top government contractors - best government contracting event

SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft has docked at the International Space Station for a month-long stay at the in-orbit facility following a launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Dragon carried 5.7K pounds of cargo containing supplies and scientific payloads during a flight above the South Pacific, SpaceX said Sunday.

The spacecraft docked at ISS' Harmony module, a utility port that connects cargo spacecraft to the station's laboratory facilities.

SpaceX has been deploying Dragon for Commercial Resupply Services missions since 2012. The spacecraft also supported the fourth and 11th CRS missions in 2014 and 2017, respectively.

The company holds a multibillion dollar contract for the second phase of the CRS program that serves as NASA's commercial medium for ISS supply deliveries.
