- Three days and 3,000 miles apart, SpaceX accomplished its second successful rocket launch of the week Wednesday, sending cargo to the International Space Station. It weighs in at 5,600 pounds, and while much of the shipment is fairly typical of a resupply mission, there's also a very special holiday dinner packed away that some of the crew members will get to enjoy when Christmas rolls around. It marked the first time the same booster flew three separate missions.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket vaulted off the pad from California's Vandenberg Air Force Base on Monday, tearing its way through unusually clear blue skies on a path to secure at least four company records before deploying dozens of spacecraft. SpaceX engineers were less happy with the first-stage booster which dropped into the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida coast, missing its designated landing zone on ground.

SpaceX founder and lead designer Elon Musk quickly explained that a hydraulic failure on the steering fins prevented a safe landing. If all goes well, the spacecraft will catch up with the station early Saturday morning. The crew-carrying version of Dragon is scheduled to fly a test mission next month, and if all goes well, will carry astronauts to the station later in the year in what would be the first crewed flight from USA soil since the space shuttles retired in 2011.
