SpaceX Dragon Successfully Docks With ISS
Hawthorne, California-based SpaceX has successfully docked its SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station on Thursday morning at 8:12 a.m. EST, after a successful launch earlier this week. NASA said the hatch between the spacecraft and the ISS Harmony module is scheduled to be opened later this afternoon. The SpaceX Dragon is expected to spend about four weeks at the ISS, according to NASA. The Dragon, which is on the tenth Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-10) for NASA, is delivering around 5,000 pounds of supplies to the space station. It's a very, very busy week at the ISS, which is also docking another spacecraft--a Russian Progress--on Friday morning at 3:34 a.m. EST.
