SpaceX’s uncrewed Dragon spacecraft has separated from the company’s Falcon 9 rocket’s second stage, as the spacecraft continues its journey to the International Space Station for NASA in order to deliver critical supplies, equipment, and material to support multiple science and research experiments that will take place aboard the orbiting laboratory.

Arrival to the station is scheduled for approximately 5:50 a.m. EDT Tuesday, June 6. The SpaceX Dragon spacecraft will dock autonomously to the space-facing port of the station’s Harmony module.
