Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 31 Flight Engineer Don Pettit of NASA and European Space Agency Flight Engineer Andre Kuipers used the station's Canadarm2 robotic arm to grapple and berth SpaceX's Dragon cargo craft to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module May 25, three days after the spacecraft was launched from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on a history-making mission as the first commercial vehicle to deliver cargo to the outpost. Dragon will spend six days berthed to Harmony, enabling the crew to unload supplies for the station's residents before it is re-grappled and released to return to Earth for a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southern California.
