SpaceX is set to launch NASA cargo to the International Space Station



A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch from the National Air and Space Administration's (NASA) Kennedy Space Center in Florida Monday, according to Space.com.

Space.com reported Monday that the rocket will transport the last, brand-new Dragon cargo ship to the International Space Station (ISS).

The rocket's first stage will also purportedly separate 10 minutes after launch, which will then head back to Earth and aim for an upright landing.

SpaceX has performed 12 cargo resupply missions to the ISS as part of a Commerical Resupply Services pact it signed with NASA in 2008.

The company's representatives reportedly said Sunday that the launch the following day is the last time a new Dragon spacecraft will be used for a launch to the ISS.
