NASASocial SpaceX CRS-6 Mission Coverage April 12-14, 2015
SpaceX CRS-6 is the sixth of at least 12 missions to the International Space Station that SpaceX will fly for NASA under
the CRS contract. In December 2008, NASA announced that SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch vehicle and Dragon spacecraft had
been selected to resupply the space station after the end of the Space Shuttle program in 2011. Under the CRS contract,
SpaceX has restored an American capability to deliver and return significant amounts of cargo, including live plants and
animals, to and from the orbiting laboratory.
