NASA has postponed the launch of Dragon to ISS with mould

An unmanned SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with a Dragon capsule sits on launch pad 40 after a scrubbed launch attempt

International Space Station configuration as of December 3, 2018 showing locations of five visiting vehicles: two Russian crew spacecraft-Soyuz MS-09, Soyuz MS-11; two Russian cargo spacecraft-Progress MS-09 (NASA calls it Progress 70) and Progress MS-10 (Progress 71), and the U.S. Northrop Grumman Cygnus-10 cargo spacecraft.

Two days after launching a rocket carrying 64 satellites from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Hawthorne-based SpaceX will attempt Wednesday to launch a resupply mission to the International Space Station from Cape Canaveral in Florida. If that wasn't impressive enough, the launch was also SpaceX's 19th launch of the year-the previous record was 18-and it still has three more launches planned before the year is out. SpaceX plans to land the new Falcon 9 booster back at Cape Canaveral a few minutes after launch, the first onshore landing since the Falcon Heavy launch in February.

The bad food was replaced ahead of Wednesday s launch.

According to Associated Press, a Dragon capsule and its 5,600 pounds (2,500 kilograms) of cargo, was launched into space on Wednesday from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

The Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Space Station Challenge is sponsoring student experiments to develop a UV-activated dental glue that could help astronauts on long-duration voyages and another testing a mist-based irrigation system for plants grown in space.

It is expected to reach the ISS on Saturday. Its first step was about to land back at the launch site. It is joining five other "visiting vehicles" now docked there: two Soyuz crew spacecraft, two Russian Progress cargo spacecraft, and a Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo spacecraft. Kononenko arrived at the station Monday along with Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques and NASA astronaut Anne McClain.

Dragon is scheduled to depart from the station in January 2019 and return to Earth with more than 4,000 pounds of research, hardware and crew supplies, NASA said. The others return home on December 20, leaving only three for Christmas dinner, not counting the mice and worms.
