Science Bulletins: SpaceX Dragon Succeeds in Historic Mission

SpaceX achieved a milestone in space travel last month, becoming the first private company in the United States to successfully launch a cargo capsule, attach it to the International Space Station, and safely return it to Earth. Their Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft were developed with NASA engineers to supply the ISS following the termination of NASA's space shuttle program. Dragon is designed to carry both cargo and astronauts, and future missions may include in-space technology demonstrations, instruments tests, and experiments. This latest Astro Bulletin from the American Museum of Natural History's Science Bulletins program is on display in the Hall of the Universe until July 11, 2012. Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the American Museum of Natural History.
