CRS-23 Mission

SpaceX is targeting Sunday, August 29 for Falcon 9s launch of Dragon's 23rd Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-23) mission. Liftoff is targeted for 3:14 a.m. EDT, or 7:14 UTC, from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center, Florida.

Falcon 9s first stage booster previously supported SpaceXs Crew-1 and Crew-2 missions, which launched astronauts to the International Space Station, and launch of SXM-8. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9s first stage on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean.

The Dragon spacecraft supporting this mission previously supported SpaceXs 21st Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-21) mission. Dragon will separate from Falcon 9s second stage about twelve minutes after liftoff and autonomously dock to the space station on Monday, August 30 at approximately 11:00 a.m. EDT, 15:00 UTC.

A live webcast of this mission will begin about 15 minutes prior to liftoff.
