SpaceX Dragon Cargo ship arrived at International space station [ISS] on May 6 for supplying about 3 tons of NASA supplies to the spacecraft which is in the orbit. Both space missions sailed at a distance of 254 miles (408 kilometers) over the North Atlantic Ocean, astronauts occupied an untrained Dragon Cargo ship with a robotic arm at 7:10 AM EDT (1101 GMT) at this station. The spacecraft is taking approximately 5,500 lbs. (2,495 kilograms) experiments and other supplies for the 59 crew and six-person expedition.
SpaceX started on Saturday (May 4th) with the Dragon Cargo vessel with the Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. NASA officials said that today as a spacecraft near the station, astronauts laid a small cable on that craft, which was to be separated during the launch, but it was not a problem for docking. It is noteworthy that this is the second flight of this special capsule, which flew the SpaceX-12 mission, “St.-Jacques said. The space shuttle has a small space station symbol, which indicates that preview flight in 2017 gives. Dragon’s current delivery mission is called CRS-17 by the NASA and SpaceX-17 company. As the name suggests, this is the seventeenth cargo run for NASA by SpaceX because in 2012 commercial flights started. Spacecraft is hosting new science payloads for use inside and outside the International Space Station
In those experiments, NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-3 is a device to be installed on the outer part of the station to track the level of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere. Spacecraft are also taking so-called “tissue chips” for behavior or emulation of human organs in space. Before being packed with experiment samples and other gear and returning to Earth, the dragon will be connected to the station for approximately one month. Spacecraft contain heat shields and parachutes which allow it to survive.
