SpaceX successfully launches CRS-10 mission on second attempt

SpaceX has succeeded in launching it’s Falcon 9 rocket after the mission was scrubbed on it’s first attempt yesterday.

The launch was scrubbed at T-13 seconds when mission control picked up issues with the Falcon 9’s thrust vectoring control system.

The Dragon spacecraft carrying experiments and supplies to the International Space Station (ISS) successfully separated from the rocket stack about 11 minutes into the mission, and the second stage performed a flawless landing.

The Dragon is scheduled to dock with the ISS on Wednesday.
