Company SpaceX is really surprising even those fans of space technologies that are sufficiently well versed in them - today, the talented team proved once again that the vision of Elon musk for renewable in the use of missiles is becoming more and more form.

A SpaceX Dragon spacecraft carrying almost 6,000 pound of research equipment, cargo and supplies has successfully launched to the International Space Station (ISS), NASA said on Thursday.

The booster continued to function after it landed in the water, going through its automated safeing process and transmitting data.

When a Falcon 9 hoisted 64 small satellites in a single launch from California on Monday, it was the third flight for that particular booster. The Falcon 9 climbed away to the northeast directly into that orbital plane to enable the planned rendezvous. Hans claimed that the water landing was pretty much smooth and today's incident showed how SpaceX's rocket are created to save itself in case if anything goes wrong. If all goes well, the spacecraft will catch up with the station early Saturday morning.

The launch was delayed a day when NASA discovered that the food for the mouse-tronauts was moldy. It marked the first time the same booster flew three separate missions. Six spacecraft is the maximum the space station has held, according to NASA spokesperson Dan Huot. Those projects will test dental glue and a plant-watering process for space.
