SpaceX taking recycling all the way to orbit with cargo ship

Hawthorne-based SpaceX is kicking off a very busy launch month in June with a launch tomorrow, June 1st, with another mission to the International Space Station, SpaceX said on Wednesday.

The launch is part of NASA's commercial cargo program - paying commercial companies like SpaceX to ship supplies to the orbiting lab. The liftoff will be at 5:55 p.m. EDT from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the U.S. space agency NASA said. SpaceX has successfully recovered Falcon 9 first stages from six missions at sea using the company´s Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ships.

The weather forecast for Thursday's launch was 70% favorable, NASA said.

Warriors wary of LeBron as Cavs arrive for Finals

It is packed with nearly 6,000 pounds (2,700 kilograms) of science research, crew supplies and hardware. The company is advancing the boundaries of space technology through its Falcon launch vehicles and Dragon spacecraft.

Koenigsmann told reporters more and more reused capsules will carry cargo to the space station, each possibly flying three times.

Launch coverage will begin on NASA Television and the agency's website at 5:15 p.m., followed by the post-launch news conference at 7:30 p.m, the USA space agency added. Dragon capsules are being developed to carry astronauts to the space station as early as next year; it's too soon to say whether those, too, will be recycled, he said. This will be the 12th Dragon visit overall and the 11th under NASA contract. SpaceX is leasing the pad from NASA. A Russian and Frenchman will be headed home, leaving two Americans and one Russian in orbit.
