CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Acommercial cargo ship rocketedintoorbitSundayinpursuitoftheInternational Space Station, thefirstofadozensupplyrunsundera mega-contract with NASA.It was the second launch of a Dragon capsule to the orbiting lab by the California-basedSpaceX company. The first waslast spring. This time was no test flight,however, and the spacecraft car-ried 1,000 pounds of key scienceexperiments and other preciousgear. There was also a personaltouch: chocolate-vanilla swirl icecream tucked in a freezer for thethree station residents. The company’s unmanned Fal-con rocket roared into the nightskyrightontime,puttingSpaceXon track to reach the space sta-tion Wednesday. The complex was soaring southwest of Tasma-nia when the Falcon took flight.Officials declared the launch a success.In more good news, a piece of space junk was no longer threat-ening the station, and NASAcould focus entirely on the deliv-ery mission.NASA is counting on privatebusinesstorestockthespacesta-tion, now that the shuttles haveretired to museums.
