Overnight, Dragon will conduct a series of burns that bring the spacecraft closer to the space station. After passing a series of GO/NO-GO points determined by both Mission Control in Houston and the SpaceX team in Hawthorne, Dragon is targeted to be grappled by the space station’s robotic arm at approximately 7:14am ET.

SpaceX Makes Strides Towards 1st Stage Falcon Rocket Recovery during Space Station Launch

The powerful SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that launched successfully on a cargo delivery run for NASA bound for the Space Station on Friday, April 18, from Cape Canaveral, Fla, also had a key secondary objective for the company aimed at experimenting with eventually recovering the rockets first stage via the use of landing legs and leading to the boosters refurbishment and reuse further down the road.

That's awesome, not long now before they start landing on land!
 
Data upload from tracking plane shows first stage landing in Atlantic was good! Flight computers continued transmitting for 8 seconds after reaching the water. Stopped when booster went horizontal. Several boats en route through heavy seas...

Last known state for rocket boost stage is 360 m/s, Mach 1.1, 8.5 km altitude and roll rate close to zero (very important!)

And liftoff! SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket with Dragon spacecraft lifted off at 3:25 p.m. EDT from Launch Complex 40, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. and is on its way to the International Space Station. Dragon’s twin solar arrays deployed on schedule less than 15 minutes after launch. They will allow the spacecraft to recharge its batteries on its way to the space station.

WOW! SpaceX Dragon Captured on Film in Orbit Over Paris 25 Minutes After Launch

We need to say it: astrophotographer Thierry Legault has done it again! Here’s an absolutely fantastic capture of the SpaceX Dragon capsule just 25 minutes after it launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, as it passed over Europe. Here, Legault captured footage of Dragon crossing the Big Dipper as seen from Paris at 19:50 UTC, April 18, 2014.
