SpaceX Set to Launch

On Saturday, May 19, SpaceX will launch it's first mission to the international space station.

This will mark the first time that any private company has done so.

The Dragon Capsule is being launched on Falcon 9, from Kennedy Space Center.

It will bring supplies to the astronauts in the space station, much in the way the NASA shuttles used to.

A reusable spacecraft, the Dragon Capsule sends reminders of the craft used in Apollo missions.
