CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida – Delivery of SpaceX full of Christmas bounty arrives at the International Space Station.
The dragon capsule was stopped in a circulatory laboratory three days after launch from Florida on Saturday.
It took two attempts to get the Dragon so close to being captured by the robot's shoulder of the space station.
NASA has withdrawn the first Dragon approach due to communications network space communications problems that serve the space station. A device failure in New Mexico for NASA to monitor and data transmission has resulted in a temporary loss of communication with the station. For security reasons, the mission prohibited Drake from backing up.
It was a success two – just an hour and a half later – after NASA switched to another TDRS (T-driss) satellite.
The dragon holds everything that astronauts need for Christmas dinner.
