The Dragon is a recycled spacecraft this being its second space trip.

SpaceX has launched a load of supplies to the International Space Station while it was running at full power following repairs.

It was David Saint-Jacques' very first "space catch". NASA has given SpaceX a $2.6 billion contract for building the Crew Dragon capsule that NASA was planning to use for returning human space flight back to United States soil.

According to NASA, the four experiments will study how microgravity suppresses the immune system; how potential drugs can prevent the onset of Post-traumatic Osteoarthritis, a form of arthritis caused by traumatic bone injuries that is common in astronauts; how space travel affects the brain blood barrier and, therefore, brain function; and how microgravity, altered diet and other aspects of space travel impact kidney health.

The current mission is using the returnable Dragon capsule that made a flight in August 2017.

Because the space station suffered some power shortages, the delivery needed to be delayed for a few days and then at the rocket-landing platform in the Atlantic.
