    The SpaceX Dragon cargo ship arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) for its commercial resupply mission, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US SpaceX aerospace manufacturer's Dragon resupply cargo ship arrived at the International Space Station (ISS), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) reported Wednesday.

    "And that is a confirmed capture of the SpaceX Dragon cargo vehicle on its commercial resupply mission," the speaker leading a NASA broadcast of the SpaceX Dragon's arrival at the ISS said.

    The SpaceX Dragon cargo ship was launched from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, United States on Monday.

    The spacecraft brought two international docking adapters and a space-based DNA sequencer, which is capable of identifying microbes, diagnosing diseases and evaluating crew member's health to the ISS, according to NASA. Once installed, the international docking adapter will enable commercial ships to dock at the ISS.
