NEW YORK, March 9th. The American spacecraft Dragon docked with the International Space Station (ISS) on Monday morning. 


The operation was broadcast on the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Web site.

NASA astronaut Jessica Meir carried out the operation to capture the spacecraft using the remote manipulator "Canadarm2". The spacecraft is attached to the American module Harmony. As reported on NASA's Twitter account, "after two days of flight, Dragon successfully docked with the ISS" and will dock with the station until April.


The spacecraft delivered to the ISS 1950 kg of cargo, including scientific equipment for biomedical research and equipment for the study of chemical reactions under microgravity conditions.

Dragon was put into orbit by the Falcon 9 launch vehicle, which was launched from Launch Complex 40 at U.S. Air Force Base at Cape Canaveral, Florida, March 6.

At present, a Russian, Oleg Skripochka, and Americans, Andrew Morgan and Jessica Meir, are on board the ISS.
