Equipment to monitor dust storms on the Earth’s surface and soil microorganisms will go to the station: scientists want to see how they behave in zero gravity. In addition, the ship will bring materials and equipment to study the processes underlying the aging of the immune system, to create a biopolymer composite with the addition of lunar soil, which could be used in the future to build a base on the Earth satellite. Also on board the ship are five NASA ELaNa 45 cubesats, in which various US educational institutions participate.

The current launch of the Falcon-9 rocket is already the 30th in a row this year, and the 30th successful. All missiles were also returned.
