U.S. Commercial Cargo Ship Departs Space Station for Earth

Spoiler

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.

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

Spoiler

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 Centre, Florida, Dragon was captured by Expedition 52 Flight Engineer Jack Fischer of NASA using the stations Canadian-built robotic arm. Ground controllers then took control of the robotic arm, manoeuvring 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.
