The rocket and spacecraft being used for the mission have been used by SpaceX in the past, including the Dragon cargo capsule, which was used to resupply the ISS in 2016.
NASA says it will arrive at the ISS Monday morning carrying more than 5,900 pounds of research investigations, equipment, cargo and supplies that will support some of the investigations aboard the orbiting laboratory.
