SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft race toward orbit after launching from Launch Complex-40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., at 10:43 a.m. EST. The Dragon capsule will go through several maneuvers before it re-enters the atmosphere and splashes down in the Pacific Ocean about 500 miles west of the coast of Mexico.
