SpaceX is scheduled to launch its 1

8th cargo mission for NASA on Thursday, even though thunderstorms in Florida threaten to postpone the launch for the second time.

The company launches its "Cargo Dragon" capsule on a Falken 9 missile for the mission, called CRS-18. The capsule has about 2.5 tons of supplies on board and several research and technology charges destined for the International Space Station.

The CRS-18 capsule was deployed after the CRS-6 flight and twice reused CRS-18 missions in 2015 and 2017, respectively. This is the first time SpaceX has flown its Cargo Dragon capsule three times. In addition, the rocket booster launched a SpaceX mission in early June.

SpaceX launches the first Block 5 version of its Falcon 9 rocket for the Bangabandhu Satellite 1 mission.

The crew of Dragon takes about two days to travel to the space station and is scheduled to dock on Friday.
