SpaceX’s Dragon Spacecraft Arrives at ISS for 17th Cargo Resupply Mission

SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station Monday to deliver over 5.5K pounds of supplies and payload in the company's 17th resupply mission to the laboratory.

The spacecraft flew 257 miles above the North Atlantic Ocean before it docked with the laboratory's Harmony module to begin its four-week mission, the company said Monday.

Dragon took off aboard a Falcon 9 rocket Wednesday from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida as part of the Commercial Resupply Services contract.

It previously reached the orbital laboratory during SpaceX's 12th cargo delivery mission in 2017.
