Dragon spacecraft attached to Canadarm2

The Dragon commercial space ferry seen from the International Space Station during docking on the 25 May 2012.

 

Once cleared for approach, Dragon stopped 10 m from the Space Station where ESA astronaut André Kuipers and NASA astronaut Don Pettit used the Canadian robotic arm, Canadarm2, to grab and dock the spacecraft.

 

Dragon brought supplies and equipment to the orbital outpost and will return to Earth after a week.
