The next flight of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to deliver cargo to the International Space Station now is targeted for Aug. 13 at approximately 12:56 p.m. EDT from Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

This will be the company’s 12th commercial resupply mission to the orbiting laboratory. The Falcon 9 will send a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft filled with nearly 6,000 pounds of equipment, crew supplies and more than 250 science and research investigations.

The most expensive part of doing business in outer space is getting there. The private space flight company SpaceX thinks it can change all that, and Thursday's successful reuse of a rocket was a big test of its business model.

SpaceX launched a communications satellite from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida using a rocket stage that had already been to space and back. SpaceX is betting that this kind of recycling will lower its costs and revolutionize space flight.

SpaceX sent a cargo capsule to the International Space Station shortly after midnight on July 18th.  And they successfully landed the first-stage booster back on the tip of Cape Canaveral.  Rick Glasby tells us when SpaceX may reuse one of their recycled boosters in this video.
