Linear Motion Control Application – LM76 Congratulates SPACEX On Their Successful Mission to the International Space Station and Return of the Capsule to Earth!

On May 22, 2012 the SPACEX Falcon 9 2-stage rocket and the Dragon Capsule lifted off from a Cape Canaveral launch pad in Florida beginning a demonstration Mission to the International Space Station. After a picture perfect launch of the Falcon 9 2-stage rocket and insertion into orbit of the Dragon Capsule, the capsule then executed a series of maneuverss to demonstrate its flight characteristics and it was then captured by the robotic arm and docked with the Space Station. After unloading food and supplies, the crew of the Space Station loaded items to be returned to earth.

When the transfer was completed the Dragon Capsule was released from the Space Station and began it trip back to earth that ended with a splash down in the Pacific off the coast of Baja California.

Congratulations SPACEX.
