Space-X conduct test for upcoming launch

Posted:
CAPE CANAVERAL -

Space-X is getting ready for it's next launch and mission to the International Space station. Space-X successfully conducted a static fire test of it's Falcon 9 rocket Monday afternoon.

The test was part of a full dress rehearsal leading up to Friday's launch at 10 a.m.

Space-X engineers ran through all the same countdown processes as the one's expected on the day of the launch. All nine engines fired at full power for two seconds while it was held down to the pad.

Space-X will now conduct a thorough review of all data and continue preparations for launch.

Space-X will restock the International Space Station for the second time. In October, the Dragon spacecraft delivered supplies to the International Space Station.  Dragon will dock at the International Space Station and spend three weeks in space.
