For those flights, SpaceX plans to switch over to a new version of the Dragon cargo capsule, one that's very similar to SpaceX's Crew Dragon that will soon carry NASA astronauts to the station.

The launch was previously scheduled for July 24, but scrubbed 30 seconds before liftoff because of poor weather. SpaceX made a decision to scrub Wednesday's attempt and reschedule the launch for today, even though conditions are still expected to be iffy, according to Weather Squadron officials. Earlier Air Force weather predictions indicated a low chance for launch but the weather improved dramatically, shortly before launch time.

Following up on yesterday's news regarding the delay of SpaceX's cargo mission to the International Space Station (ISS), recent news coming out from SpaceX confirms that today's launch was a success and that the Dragon capsule is on its way to the ISS.

"The morning of July 25, the weather looked much the same but cleared up just in time". Jessica Jensen, director of Dragon mission management at SpaceX, said at a pre-launch press conference July 24 that the static-fire test was delayed to correct a small liquid oxygen leak detected in the first stage.

The Dragon resupply ship is carrying about 2.5 tonnes of cargo to the orbital station, including food and equipment for carrying out scientific experiments.

The sending of the capsule coincides with the company launching a prototype of its Starship rocket, which aims to take humans and cargo to the moon and Mars. To mark this accomplishment, it is outfitted with three noteworthy stickers: "two station badges representing the previous resupply missions it has flown (CRS-6 and CRS-13) and the Apollo 50th anniversary logo".
