    Space station supply ship returns to Earth

    Published on May 21, 2015

    After almost five weeks at the International Space Station, the unpiloted U.S. SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft departed the ISS on May 21 to begin the journey back to Earth. Dragon brought back with it, more than 3,000 pounds of experiments and cargo for researchers and station program personnel.

    SpaceX Dragon arrives at the Space Station

    Published on Jul 20, 2016

    On July 20, two days after launching from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Florida , the SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station, carrying science research, crew supplies and hardware in support of the station’s Expedition 48 and 49 crews. NASA astronaut Jeff Williams used the station’s robotic arm, which he controlled from the station’s cupola, to capture the Dragon. Ground controllers in Houston then sent commands instructing the robot arm to install Dragon on the Earth-facing side of the station’s Harmony module. During the next five weeks, crew members will unload the spacecraft and reload it with cargo to return to Earth. About five-and-a-half hours after it departs the station Aug. 29, it will splash down in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Baja California.

    SpaceX CRS-9 Dragon capture highlights

    Published on Jul 20, 2016

    CRS-9 Dragon spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station on 20 July 2016, after a two day journey from the launch. NASA’s Expedition 48 Commander Jeff Williams and NASA Flight Engineer Kate Rubins used the Station’s robotic Canadarm2 to reach out and capture the Dragon spacecraft from the station’s cupola work station at 10:56 UTC. CRS-9 is the ninth mission by SpaceX under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services contract.

    U.S. Commercial Cargo Ship Arrives at the Space Station

    Published on Jun 5, 2017

    The SpaceX/Dragon cargo ship arrived at the International Space Station after a two-day journey to deliver about 7,600 pounds of supplies and science experiments to the Expedition 52 crew. Following its launch atop the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket June 3 from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, Dragon was captured by Expedition 52 Flight Engineer Jack Fischer of NASA using the station’s Canadian-built robotic arm. Ground controllers then took control of the robotic arm, maneuvering Dragon to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module, where it was installed and bolted into place. Dragon is scheduled to remain at the station for a month before it is unberthed and deorbited for a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.

    U.S. commercial cargo ship departs space station for Earth

    Published on Jul 3, 2017

    The unpiloted SpaceX/Dragon cargo craft departed the International Space Station July 2 bound for a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Pacific Ocean southwest of Long Beach, California. Loaded with valuable science samples and other hardware, Dragon was robotically released by Expedition 52 Flight Engineers Jack Fischer and Peggy Whitson, who operated the station’s Canadarm2 robotic arm from the cupola work station. The Dragon, which was launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket June 3, delivered more than three tons of scientific investigations and supplies for the station’s residents.

    SpaceX CRS-15: Dragon berthing to the ISS, July 2, 2018

    Published on Jul 2, 2018

    The SpaceX Dragon CRS-15 cargo spacecraft was berthed to the Harmony module of the International Space Station on 2 July2018. The spacecraft was captured with the International Space Station’s robotic Canadarm2 on 2 July2018, at 10:54 UTC (06:54 EDT). Dragon previously supported the CRS-9 mission in July 2016 and is now carrying more than 5,900 pounds of research investigations and equipment, cargo and supplies. Among those, a cellular biology investigation (Micro-12) to understand how microgravity affects the growth, an Earth science instrument called the ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS), the Crew Interactive MObile companioN (CIMON) - crew support from an artificial intelligence (AI) in terms of efficiency and acceptance during long-term missions in space.
