A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched Dragon’s 26th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-26) mission sending supplies to the International Space Station from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center at 2:20 p.m. on 26 November 2022. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage landed on the Just Read the Instructions droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. This is the first flight of the Dragon spacecraft supporting this mission.

According to NASA, Dragon will deliver more than 7,700 pounds of cargo consisting of a variety of NASA investigations, supplies, and equipment to the crew aboard the space station, including the next pair of ISS Roll Out Solar Arrays (iROSAs). The spacecraft is expected to spend about a month attached to the orbiting outpost before it returns to Earth with research and return cargo, splashing down off the coast of Florida.
