SpaceX Christ­mas de­liv­ery ar­rives at space sta­tion

The Sun News (Sunday) - - News -

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.
