Photos of the Day... Only two days remain before the Dragon spacecraft is launched on the Commercial Resupply Services (CRS)-1 mission to the International Space Station (ISS). NASA and SpaceX have given a "Go" during today's Launch Readiness Review to send Dragon on its way to the ISS at 5:35 PM, Pacific Daylight Time on Sunday. Here's hoping this flight will be as enormously successful as Dragon C2+ was last May.
