SpaceX has launched a Dragon cargo vehicle for NASA. CRS-8 cargo mission launched to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on April 8. The Dragon spacecraft carrying crew supplies, station hardware and science experiments is scheduled to arrive at the space station on Sunday April 10. Stored in the trunk of the Dragon craft is the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM), which is packed up like a parachute but can be made to expand to more than five times its compressed volume. SpaceX is aiming to increase its total number of yearly launches. “And we hope we’re going to be able to launch basically every other week by the end of the year,” Hans Koenigsmann said.
