On March 01, 2013 at 15:10 UTC the "Falcon 9” rocket-carrier was launched from the Cape Canaveral US Air Force Station in Florida. The launch was performed by the "SpaceX” private company supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force.
US private company SpaceX launched its "Dragon” unmanned space freighter on a second resupply mission to the International Space Station.
The Dragon spacecraft is carrying about a ton of supplies for the space station crew and for experiments being conducted aboard the ISS.
The space freighter is expected to dock with the Earth-facing port of the space station's Harmony module where it will remain for a few weeks while astronauts unload cargo and load the craft with experiment samples and equipment.
