The commercial resupply service mission CRS-11 utilized a Falcon 9 launch vehicle, making it the first reuse of C106, a CRS Dragon cargo vessel that was previously flown on the CRS-4 mission. Courtesy of SpaceX

The commercial resupply service mission, CRS-11, launched aboard a Falcon 9 rocket on June 3, 2017 from Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex. The spacecraft rendezvoused with the International Space Station on June 5, 2017 and conducted a series of orbit adjustment burns to match speed, altitude, and orientation with the ISS.

SpaceX CRS-13, a commercial resupply service mission to the International Space Station, launched on Dec. 15, 2017. The mission was contracted by NASA and was flown by SpaceX. It was the second mission to successfully reuse a Dragon capsule, previously flown on CRS-6. The first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket was the previously flown, “flight-proven” core from CRS-11. The first stage returned to land at Cape Canaveral’s Landing Zone 1 after separation of the first and second stage. Courtesy of SpaceX
