SpaceX Dragon Approaches the Station

iss055e009956 (April 4, 2018) --- The SpaceX Dragon resupply ship nears its capture point about 10 meters away from the International Space Station. Japanese astronaut Norishige Kanai commanded the Canadian Space Agency's Canadarm2 robotic arm to grapple Dragon at 6:40 a.m. EDT over the southern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa. NASA astronaut Scott Tingle backed up Kanai while monitoring the cargo ship's approach and rendezvous.
