SpaceX Eyes November 30 Cargo Launch to Space Station

With the passing of the Shuttle Program, a bit of a pall settled over the future of the United States’ roll in space exploration in general and the International Space Station specifically. Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), an American company based in California, announced the company would be sending a rocket to the ISS on November 30th and return to Earth. The space program is not dead, just hiding a bit in the private sector.

"The next flight of the Dragon we're going to go all the way and berth it to the space station, drop cargo off and bring stuff back," Reisman said.
