A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with Dragon

SpaceX Dragon is the first commercial cargo spacecraft to dock with the International Space Station. SpaceX is the company and Dragon being the capsule. Dragon blasted off atop SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida and returned to Earth 5 days later, successfully landing in the Pacific Ocean.[1]

SpaceX seeks to be a regular supplier to the space station now that the Space Shuttle has been retired.
