Watch SpaceX Launch Science and Supplies to the Space Station

Watch the 24th SpaceX cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station lift off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

Launch is targeted for 5:06 a.m. (10:06 UTC). On board are a variety of scientific investigations, including a protein crystal growth study that could improve how cancer treatment drugs are delivered to patients and a handheld bioprinter that could one day be used to print tissue directly onto wounds for faster healing.

There are also experiments from students at several universities as part of the Student Payload Opportunity with Citizen Science (SPOCS) program and an investigation that examines using clothes detergent in microgravity. Dragon will arrive to the space station the following day at about 4:30 a.m. (09:30 EST).
