This afternoon, SpaceX successfully launched its 19th commercial resupply services mission (SpaceX CRS-19) to the International Space Station (ISS) from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. This marks the final resupply mission of 2019, closing out the most prolific year for ISS National Lab research on the space station to date—more ISS National Lab-sponsored investigations launched to station this year than any year prior. Additionally, ISS National Lab-sponsored investigations exceeded the ISS National Lab’s 50% allocation of crew time dedicated to conducting experiments onboard the space station, which is entering its 20th year of continuous human presence. The SpaceX CRS-19 mission includes payloads from the life, materials, and physical sciences—each designed to leverage the unique environment of the space station to benefit life on Earth.
