SpaceX confirms March 30 date for resupply launch

Engineers have determined SpaceX's Dragon cargo resupply spacecraft can launch March 30 without repairs after an analysis showed contaminants inside the ship's unpressurized trunk pose no additional risk to optical communications and imaging payloads heading for the International Space Station, according to a statement released Friday.

SpaceX said it is targeting liftoff of the Dragon spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket at 10:50 p.m. EDT on March 30 (0250 GMT on March 31) from Cape Canaveral's Complex 40 launch pad.
