SpaceX launched the Dragon Reentry Capsule aboard the Falcon 9 launch vehicle for the first contracted cargo mission to the International Space Station (ISS). In May 2012, Dragon became the first commercial vehicle to successfully dock at the ISS and deliver supplies to the crew. For this mission, the Dragon carried approximately 1000 lbs of supplies primarily for scientific experiments. The Dragon is scheduled to reach the ISS on October 10.
