Unmanned SpaceX Dragon cargo successfully docks to ISS

Unmanned SpaceX Dragon cargo successfully docks to ISS

Moscow, Nov 27 (UNI) An unmanned SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft has successfully docked to the International Space Station (ISS) after a four-day delay caused by poor weather in Florida, NASA said on Sunday.
"A SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft autonomously docked to the space-facing port of the station’s Harmony module at 7:39 a.m. EST [12:39 GMT]," the statement read.
The Dragon spacecraft took off from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Saturday, packed with over 3.5 tonnes (7,700 pounds) of cargo, including food, supplies for scientific experiments and hardware.
However, the spaceship's most important load is a new pair of rollout solar arrays titled iROSA, which will upgrade the aging solar panels of the ISS and help modernize the energy production of the space station.
Moreover, an experiment to grow dwarf tomatoes was also sent to the astronauts to supplement their diets.
