Dock­ing over Crete

All About Space - - Launch Pad -

On 29 June, SpaceX launched its 15th re­sup­ply mis­sion to the ISS, with all the nec­es­sary equip­ment locked in­side one of SpaceX’s Dragon capsules. On 2 July the Dragon cap­sule was pic­tured al­most within touch­ing dis­tance of the space sta­tion.

The Dragon cap­sule is filled with over 2,700 kilo­grams (5,900 pounds) of liv­ing sup­plies as well as crit­i­cal ma­te­ri­als for more than 250 re­search in­ves­ti­ga­tions. Each re­sup­ply mis­sion is as im­por­tant as the last, and it’s good to know it is safely on its way, pic­tured here float­ing over

Crete, Greece.
