This is what we know about the “Dragon CRS-2 SpX-29” mission:
The Falcon 9 flight is a supply spacecraft flight.
commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station conducted by SpaceX. The flight is being conducted under NASA’s second Commercial Resupply Services contract.
Cargo Dragon 2 brings supplies and payloads, including critical materials in direct support of science and research, aboard the space laboratory.
The Falcon 9 begins its mission in the low earth orbit. This is located at an altitude of 200 to 2,000 kilometers. LEO railways have the lowest energy consumption and are the easiest to reach. Spacecraft take about 100 minutes to orbit the Earth and can travel at about 7 km/s. Radio contact with a ground station lasts a maximum of 15 minutes per circuit. Low Earth orbit is primarily used for manned space travel, but also for spy satellites, astronomical satellites, as well as earth exploration and weather satellites, amateur radio satellites, global communications systems and research and technology testing satellites.
These space programs are involved:
Commercial Resupply Services
Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) are a series of flights contracted by NASA to deliver cargo and supplies to the International Space Station. The first CRS contracts were signed in 2008, awarding SpaceX for 12 Dragon cargo flights and Orbital Sciences for eight Cygnus flights, valued at $1.6 billion, covering deliveries through 2016. The Falcon 9 and Antares rockets were also developed under the CRS program to deliver cargo systems to the ISS.
Commercial Resupply Services has existed since December 23, 2008.

International Space Station
The International Space Station program is linked by a series of complex legal, political and financial agreements between the sixteen nations involved in the project, which govern ownership of the various components, crew and use rights, and crew rotation responsibilities and regulate the supply of the International Space Station. The project was launched in 1984 by President Ronald Reagan as part of the Space Station Freedom project, as it was originally called.
International Space Station has existed since November 20, 1998.
