Editor's note: Today's launch to the International Space Station is notable for a couple reasons. First, the Dragon resupply capsule will be carrying carrying NASA's Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, a inflatible habitat that will attach to the space station for two years. NASA says it is a step to test alternatives to traditional space habitats. Second, After the launch, SpaceX will again try to land its Falcon 9 rocket on a drone ship off the Florida coast in an effort to reuse rockets and save money. - Stephanie
