Falcon 9 launched CR-28 on Monday, marks SpaceX’s 20th mission for Dragon

On Monday, 5 June 2023, Falcon 9 launched CRS-28 to the International Space Station. This comes as the 20th mission by SpaceX where they have successfully flown a flight-proven Dragon.

The launch of CRS-28 also marks the Dragon fleet’s 38th trip to the orbiting lab. This crossed the limit set by U. S’s Space Shuttle in terms of the most number of visits to the station by a spacecraft.

On June 6, the Dragon 2 fleet also broke the record of the Space Shuttle in terms of cumulative time and space. This comprises 1,324 days in orbit.

Astranis Space Technologies are also looking forward to going forward with its Falcon 9 flight in the latter part of this year.

The CRS-28 is also known as SpX-28. It is a Commercial Resupply Service mission to the ISS.

CRS-28 marks the eighth flight for SpaceX under NASA’s CRS Phase 2. NASA is the contractor for the CRS mission.

Although the mission was to launch the CRS-28 on 4 June 2023, it got postponed to Monday due to high winds in the recovery area on Sunday.

It is to be noted that the Cargo Dragon capsules under the NASA CRS Phase 2 contracts would land east of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean.
