Dragon En Route to Monday Rendezvous

Posted on by .

A SpaceX Dragon spacecraft and nearly three tons of cargo including scientific equipment will rendezvous with the International Space Station on Monday morning. Astronaut Jack Fischer, one of the station’s resident crew members, will steer the robotic arm on the orbital laboratory to grapple the uncrewed Dragon. Ground controllers will operate the arm to maneuver the Dragon to a port on the station where the astronauts will open the hatch and unpack the spacecraft. NASA TV will begin covering the rendezvous at 8:30 a.m. Monday. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
