SpaceX is about to launch a few tons of research material alongside ice cream to the International Space Station.
An unmanned Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled to blast off at 12:31 p.m. Monday from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.
The dragon capsule will be used again this time housing the ice cream, and the rocket is expected to return to be reused. This will be the twelfth commercial resupply mission conducted by SpaceX, and will further increase the push to privatize much of space travel as SpaceX continues to operate successful missions.
