SpaceX has landed yet another one of its Falcon 9 rockets after launching the vehicle into space this afternoon.

The rocket took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 12:31PM ET, bound for the International Space Station.

Around eight minutes after takeoff, the majority of the vehicle landed back on solid ground off the Florida coast, which marks the 14th successful rocket landing for SpaceX, and the sixth time a Falcon 9 has successfully touched on solid ground post-launch.

The Falcon 9 rocket carried a Dragon cargo capsule filled with more than 6,400 pounds of supplies and science experiments for the crew on the International Space Station.

The Dragon will spend the next couple of days in orbit before meeting up with the station on Wednesday.

The astronauts are scheduled to open up the Dragon on Thursday, but there may be an incentive to open the capsule ahead of schedule, since it’ll be containing extra frozen ice cream this time. theverge.com
