    Elon Musk’s pet space project, SpaceX, launched a Falcon 9 rocket and its accompanying Dragon spacecraft on a cargo mission to the International Space Station on Monday.

    The vessel left the ground 31 minutes after noon on Monday from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, Florida. Researchers stationed on the ISS, a habitable artificial satellite orbiting Earth, will receive 6,000 tons of supplies, groceries, an espresso maker, a 3-D printer and candy bars, Wired reports. Monday’s launch was the twelfth resupply mission to the ISS, Sputnik International noted.

    Part of the Falcon 9 successfully landed back at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, according to SpaceX.
