On Tuesday, May 22 at 07:44 UT SpaceX’s Dragon hopes to transport the student payload Aquarius on SSEP Mission 1 to the International Space Station (ISS).
The set of SSEP Mission 1 experiments, called Aquarius, was originally slated to fly aboard the Soyuz 30. But in an interesting twist of fate, the experiments were re-manifested on the maiden voyage of the SpaceX Dragon to the ISS. Aquarius not only becomes part of a historic first but also allows the space station to remain an out-of-this-world platform to engage students in STEM — science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The SpaceX Dragon launch will be broadcast live on the Internet details at
