The 9:38 a.m. EST liftoff marked the first time the site was used since the final shuttle mission, STS-135, flew in July of 2011. The CRS-10 Dragon spacecraft that used the Falcon 9 as its ride to orbit was packed with about 5,000 lbs of experiments, cargo and crew supplies bound for the International Space Station.
