NASA dixit:
“The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lifted off on June 3 from Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, carrying the uncrewed Dragon cargo ship to orbit for the start of a delivery run to the residents of the International Space Station. Loaded with about 6,000 pounds of supplies and science experiments, Dragon is scheduled to arrive at the station on June 5, where it will be captured by Expedition 52 Flight Engineer Jack Fischer of NASA using the station’s Canadian-built robotic arm. Dragon is scheduled to remain at the station for a month before it is unberthed and deorbited for a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.”
