CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lifts off Space Launch Complex 40 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida leaving an exhaust cloud in its wake. Launch of the SpaceX-3 mission was during an instantaneous window at 3:25 p.m. EDT, sending the Dragon resupply spacecraft on its way to the International Space Station. Dragon is making its fourth trip to the space station. The SpaceX-3 mission, carrying almost 2.5 tons of supplies, technology and science experiments, is the third of 12 flights through a $1.6 billion NASA Commercial Resupply Services contract. Dragon's cargo will support more than 150 experiments that will be conducted during the station's Expeditions 39 and 40.
