Default SpaceX Is Finally on Its Way Back to the ISS After Historic Launch

"On Sunday morning, SpaceX successfully launched and landed a Falcon 9 rocket
carrying a Dragon spacecraft loaded with over 5000 pounds of supplies and
experiments bound for the International Space Station.

Cargo Resupply mission 10 (CRS-10) was a historic one for a number of reasons.
Primarily because it marked Kennedy Space Center's return to being an active
spaceport after nearly six years of no launches following the end of space shuttle
program in 2011, but also because it marked SpaceX's first return to the ISS after
it had a Falcon 9 explode on the launch pad during a pre-launch test last
September."
