Its mission is SpaceX’s 21st resupply flight to the space station.

“The mission will deliver more than 6,400 pounds of essential supplies, equipment and materials to support dozens of science and research experiments that will take place during Expeditions 64 and 65,” NASA said in a blog post.

The cargo capsule is expected to reach the space station on Monday, joining another Dragon that sent out four astronauts last month.
