SpaceX is taking to the skies (and beyond) again, Friday, March 1 10:30 a.m. (EST) to be exact. The SpaceX Falcon 9 will launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida Friday morning and we’ll have the livestream here on TechnoBuffalo.

After the launch, the spacecraft, Dragon, will separate from Falcon 9 and make its way to the International Space Station. This trip, CRS-2, is the second of at least 12 missions for Commercial Resupply (CRS) project. Dragon will be filled with approximately 1,200 pounds of supplies, to bring to the crew in the ISS. Dragon will return to Earth after more than three weeks with the Space Station filled with 2,500 pounds of gear.

SpaceX, founded by PayPal and Tesla Motors co-founder Elon Musk, has had numerous successful launches of his spacecrafts and we hope this one is as successful. We hope the CRS-2 mission is as successful as previous trips as it has at least 10 more trips to complete before Elon Musk’s next goals, which is to take Dragon from a simple cargo carrying vehicle to crew-ready, and eventually making space tourism a reality.

Editor’s note: I want to go to there.

Here’s a clip from SpaceX from the last launch and docking with the ISS.
