Loaded with about 2,500 kg of research, supplies and hardware for crew members living and working on the orbiting laboratory, the spacecraft launched aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from the Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

After several attempts earlier, SpaceX on Saturday successfully launched a Dragon spacecraft for its 17th resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

The Dragon spacecraft is scheduled to reach the ISS on May 6, NASA said.

“@SpaceX’s #Dragon spacecraft launched at 2:48 am ET on a mission to deliver more than 5,500 pounds of research, crew supplies and hardware to the @Space_Station,” NASA said in a tweet.

The spacecraft will remain at the space station for about four weeks before returning to Earth with more than 1,900 kg of research and return cargo.

This mission comes after the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule was destroyed during an engine test last month, possibly causing a drag on the company’s plan to bring astronauts into space this year.On April 20, an anomaly occurred during a testing of the Crew Dragon’s abort engines at a landing zone of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, but the private space company had not clarified whether the capsule, launched successfully into space in an unmanned mission in March, was destroyed or not, until Thursday.
