Falcon 9 launch of CRS-13 Dragon mission (NASA) A SpaceX Falcon 9, using a previously-flown first stage, launched a Dragon cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station Friday. The Falcon 9 lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 at 10:36 am EST (1536 GMT) and released the Dragon into low Earth orbit ten minutes later. The rocket's first stage, which first flew on another Dragon cargo mission in June, landed at Cape Canaveral. The launch was the first use of a flight-proven Falcon 9 first stage on a NASA mission, and the fourth overall. The Dragon, carrying more than 2,200 kilograms of equipment and supplies, will arrive at the ISS early Sunday.
