SpaceX Christmas delivery arrives at space station
A SpaceX delivery of holiday goodies arrived at the International Space Station on Saturday.
The Dragon capsule pulled up at the orbiting lab three days after launching from Cape Canaveral. Commander Alexander Gerst used the sta- tion’s robotic arm to grab the cargo carrier.
The bolted-down Dragon holds everything the sixperson crew needs for Christmas dinner, as well as mice and worms for science experiments, and more than 5,000 pounds of equipment. The holiday food includes smoked turkey and green bean casserole. There also are cookies, with tubes of icing for decorating.
