CRS-18 Dragon launch

SpaceX’s 18th Commercial Resupply Services Dragon mission to the International Space Station is scheduled to launch mid-summer atop a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 40 in Florida.

Among the supplies and hardware being launched is the second International Docking Adapter for the International Space Station, IDA-3, which will be attached to Pressurized Mating Adapter-2 located on the zenith port of the Harmony module.

Once in orbit, the Dragon is expected to spend two days catching up with the ISS. Should the spacecraft launch on July 21, rendezvous and berthing with the ISS should be on July 23.
