Two days after its launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, SpaceX’s Cargo Dragon spacecraft was captured by NASA astronauts Nick Hague and Christina Koch at 9:11 a.m. EDT on Saturday, July 27, using the International Space Station’s Canadarm2 robotic arm. The spacecraft is now installed to the nadir port of the space station’s Harmony module for its month-long stay.
The company’s 18th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-18) mission delivered around 5,000 pounds of supplies, equipment and material that will directly support multiple science and research investigations taking place during Expedition 60 and beyond.
