SpaceX spacecraft delivers supplies to ISS

A SpaceX freighter carrying 2600kg of food supplies and materials for scientific experiments has reached the International Space Station.

The Dragon cargo spacecraft operated by private company SpaceX docked on schedule, NASA announced on Saturday.

The unmanned spacecraft was launched on SpaceX’s 25th contracted commercial resupply mission from NASA’s Cape Canaveral spaceport in Florida on Thursday and is to remain at the ISS for about one month.

The scientific experiments delivered by Dragon are to investigate dust in the earth’s atmosphere as well as to research the ageing of immune cells, among other things.
