Spacex third cargo delivery flight
NASA – International Space Station Commander Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, with the assistance of NASA’s Rick Mastracchio, successfully berthed the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft at the space station on Easter Sunday at 9:06 a.m. EDT.
The mission is the company’s third cargo delivery flight to the station. Dragon’s cargo will support more than 150 experiments to be conducted by the crews of ISS Expeditions 39 and 40.
“Enter the Dragon” takes on a whole new meaning this month as SpaceX’s Dragon capsule heads to the International Space Station for its third commercial resupply mission scheduled to launch on April 18. During the SpaceX-3 mission, the Dragon capsule not only will deliver cargo to the orbiting laboratory, but it also will return science samples and hardware to Earth.
