With a safe splashdown today, SpaceX completed another successful Dragon cargo mission to ISS.

The next Dragon cargo flight is scheduled for June 26, when SpaceX will once again try to land the Falcon 9 first stage vertically.

    CRS-7, next Dragon, brings the LIDS docking adapter to attach to a PMA so Dragon Crew and CST-100 can dock. CRS-8 brings up BEAM, and CRS-9 brings the LIDS for the second PMA. Very interesting missions just this year!
