Global News published this video item, entitled “SpaceX crew gets warm welcome aboard Space Station after docking” – below is their description.
The crew on board a SpaceX rocket received a warm welcome aboard the International Space Station on Saturday after their capsule docked following another historic flight.
The astronauts had launched Friday from Cape Canaveral, Fla. becoming the first-ever crew propelled into orbit by a rocket booster recycled from a previous spaceflight.
Arrival of the astronauts will briefly boost the lab crew onboard the ISS from seven to 11, though after a four-day handover, four astronauts currently on the station will return to Earth. All seven crew members face a busy six months in space, with multiple U.S. and Russian spacewalks planned and the arrival of four cargo ships loaded with science gear, crew supplies, spare parts and new solar-array blankets needed to boost the lab’s power.
