SpaceX Dragon Capsule’s launch was one of the highly anticipated occasions. It was a giant leap forward in terms of space accomplishment by a private player. The cargo capsule is the second such private effort to participate with NASA and other government agencies in carrying supplies to international space station (ISS).

Though initially there were some issues with this privately owned space capsule, the journey was continued successfully as the issue was sorted out. The rocket named as Falcon’s rocket was blasted today at 10:10 a.m. ET from Cape Canaveral. The space station is carrying along with it, essential supplies to the space station astronauts. With NASA not having its own space shuttle, this capsule is going to be carrying the task.

The Space Dragon Capsule after docking with the international space station will offload the essential supplies for the astronauts and the ISS and will load the dumps to be taken to earth. In the meantime Spacex owner and CEO Elon Musk has informed the world through a tweet from his personal account on Twitter that the Spacex was facing some issues with the three of the four thrusters on the spacecraft.

But the billionaire CEO said that he expected the space craft issue to be fixed by overriding its system. To be true, the first flight of SpaceX Dragon to the International Space Station was also not problem-free, but the issue was sorted and the spaceX was able to continue its journey and dock with the ISS. John Insprucker of SpaceX said following the lift off that “It appears that, although it achieved Earth orbit, Dragon is experiencing some type of problem right now”. It is SpaceX’s second contracted supply flight to the Space Station. It has already signed many more contracts with NASA to supply its astronauts in the ISS. The contract is worth more than one and half billion dollars.
