SpaceX Falcon 9 Blasts Off From Historic Apollo Launchpad, Then Nails A Tidy Landing

"Dragon's onboard computers triggered the abort after recognizing an incorrect value in navigational data about the location of Dragon relative to the space station", NASA said in an online post.

Luckily, nothing is wrong with the Dragon; it's in space recalculating how to dock with the ISS, which should happen Thursday.

The delayed launch one day later went perfectly - but when the Dragon craft was less than a mile from its space station dock early Wednesday, its computer automatically aborted the maneuver due to an error in its Global Positioning System software.

"Today was smooth sailing all the way along", NASA spokesman Rob Navias said after the hookup.

Then on April 12 1981, the first space shuttle launched from Pad 39-A for STS-1, and NASA astronauts John Young and Bob Crippen took the shuttle flight Columbia for two days, landed at Edwards Air Force Base, California.

"With that capture, a Dragon has now officially arrived to ISS", Pesquet radioed to NASA's Mission Control center in Houston after the successful rendezvous.

"As a pilot it is sometimes better to accelerate and circle around than attempt a hard landing", French astronaut Thomas Pesquet said in a tweet from the space station.

Coverage of the docking attempt Thursday will start on NASA TV at 4 a.m. EST.

The first stage of the rocket returned and made a soft landing at the ground-based landing zone at Cape Canaveral, for the first time during the day.

The station's robot arm will be used by flight controllers to extract the cargo from the trunk so the devices can be mounted on the station's main power truss for long-term operation. The capsule blasted off from Florida aboard a Space Exploration Technologies Corp Falcon 9 rocket on Sunday. A Russian Progress capsule is enroute to the Space Station and is due to reach the orbiting outpost early Friday morning.

The ownership and use of the space station is established by intergovernmental treaties and agreements.
