SpaceX’s Dragon capsule will soon catch up with the ISS, here’s what’s on board

SpaceX launched its 25th cargo mission to the International Space Station (ISS) on Thursday (July 14), with more than 5,800 pounds (2,630 kg) of supplies, along with equipment for NASA climate change research.

The supply mission, called the CRS-25, was blown up from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. After just 2.5 minutes of flying, the first stage of the rocket came loose and made a safe, upright landing five minutes later on SpaceX’s drone ship “A Shortfall of Gravitas” in the Atlantic. The second stage of the rocket continued upward into orbit, propelling itself and the unmanned Dragon reconnaissance craft mounted on its nose.
