Dragon will deliver nearly 5,500 pounds of science, supplies and hardware, according to NASA, and is slated to attach to the station on Monday.
On early Saturday a Falcon rocket blasted off from Florida, and it was carrying a Dragon capsule in which there were 5,500 pounds (2,500 kilograms) of goods.

The Dragon is a recycled spacecraft this being its second space trip.
The SpaceX Dragon also carried genomic DNA samples that had been edited on Earth to contain double strand breaks, the buildup of which can contribute to serious health issues. The issues were rapidly fixed with equipment substitutes, a power-switching system, and for the sea launch, a generator.
CRS-17 provided a rare treat in the form of crystal clear video throughout the launch, including the flawless touchdown of the Falcon 9's first stage on the SpaceX drone ship Of Course I Still Love You. The capsule's SuperDraco launch-abort thrusters were just a half-second from firing when the blast occurred.
The spacecraft will remain at the space station for about four weeks before returning to Earth with more than 1,900 kg of research and return cargo.More news: AG: RM236.5mil returned so far to Malaysia in 1MDB recovery
Koenigsmann said earlier this week the company still does not know what caused the empty capsule to burst apart in flames on a test stand.
SpaceX has been restocking the station since 2012.
SpaceX has been live streaming its missions for years, and we've seen some gorgeous views of space thanks to the relatively high-resolution cameras mounted around the rocket and capsule. SpaceX's spacecraft is one of six spaceships now docked with the ISS, joining Russia's Progress 71 and 72 resupply ships, the Soyuz MS-11 and MS-12 crew ships, and the Northrop Grumman Cygnus space freighter.More news: Iran may retaliate over US nuclear pullout in days
