Space.com: On 7 October at 8:35pm (EDT), SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 rocket on the first commercially licensed mission to the International Space Station. During the launch, it appeared that one of the nine engines stopped firing. However, the remaining eight engines still provided enough power to reach orbit. The unmanned Dragon capsule is scheduled to dock with the ISS early on 10 October. The mission is the first of 12 planned resupply missions in a $1.6 billion deal that SpaceX made with NASA. Dragon, which is filled with 454 kg of experimental equipment, food, and other supplies for delivery, is expected to return twice that weight in completed experiments and hardware that is ready for upgrade.
