SpaceX Successfully Launches CRS-11 Mission To International Space Station.

On June 3st 2017 at 5:07 PM, SpaceX successfully launched the CRS-11 mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Blasting off from Launch Complex 39A, this was the 100th mission launched from the pad and the 4th for SpaceX from the newly leased LC-39A. 

The CRS-11 mission took supplies for the astronauts aboard the Space Station, over 40 experiments and other cargo. This was the first time SpaceX reused a Dragon capsule to send cargo to the ISS. The last time this Dragon Capsule was used was for the CRS-4 mission.
