  • A Falcon 9 SpaceX rocket carrying a 3D printer to make human tissue is on its way to the International Space Station

The U.S. space agency NASA's cargo provider SpaceX launched a Dragon spacecraft on Thursday, starting its resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

"In addition to bringing research to station, the Dragon's unpressurized trunk is carrying the International Docking Adapter-3 (IDA-3), which, when installed on the space station, will provide the microgravity laboratory with two common ports that expand opportunities for visiting vehicles, including new spacecraft created to carry humans for NASA's Commercial Crew Program". Eastern, placing the Dragon cargo spacecraft into orbit nine minutes later.

"After a picture-perfect launch and spacecraft separation, Dragon is now drawing power from its solar arrays as it begins its solo, two-day trip to the orbiting laboratory". Specht spoke out about the unfortunate news, saying "He was the founder for mission control and laid the groundwork for how we operate in space today".

"Anywhere where we could possibly make the subsystems the same, we did", she said.
