HAWTHORNE — Hawthorne-based SpaceX launched a resupply mission to the International Space Station early Saturday, May 4, in an operation that was delayed a couple of days due to electrical problems.

“Dragon is on its way to the International Space Station! Capture by the @Space_Station crew set for early Monday morning,” the company tweeted Saturday.

The Falcon rocket, which lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Fla., carries a Dragon capsule with 5,500 pounds of supplies, and is due to arrive at the orbiting lab Monday.

The booster was recovered on a ship just offshore.

It was SpaceX’s 17th resupply mission to the space station.
