Here Be a Dragon

Florida Today reports that the SpaceX Dragon cargo carrier is scheduled to arrive today at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft left its Hawthorne, Calif., production facility Wednesday, setting off on a cross-country journey on a wide-load truck bound for Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

It will be prepared for a possible January launch atop a Falcon 9 rocket. A second demonstration mission for NASA, the flight aims to prove the vehicles’ readiness to deliver cargo to the station under a $1.6 billion contract.
