SpaceX’s Recycled Dragon Capsule Arrives at International Space Station With 4 Astronauts

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “SpaceX’s Recycled Dragon Capsule Arrives at International Space Station With 4 Astronauts” – below is their description.

A recycled SpaceX capsule carrying four astronauts arrived at the International Space Station on Saturday, the third high-flying taxi ride in less than a year for Elon Musk’s company.

The Dragon capsule docked autonomously with the orbiting outpost 260 miles (420 kilometers) above the Indian Ocean, a day after launching from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

Footage from NASA TV showed the capsule floating serenely toward the International Space Station before slowly docking with it.

The new arrivals – representing the U.S., France and Japan – will spend six months at the space station, replacing four astronauts who will return to Earth in their own Dragon capsule Wednesday.

Although this was SpaceX’s third crew flight for NASA, it was the first to use a vehicle that’s flown before, an essential part of Musk’s push to the moon and Mars.
