MOSCOW, February 23. /TASS/. US astronaut Shane Kimbrough and his French colleague Thomas Pesquet have successfully captured SpaceX’s Dragon cargo spacecraft with a shuttle remote manipulator, the European Space Agency said on Twitter on Thursday.
The spacecraft will be docked with the International Space Station in a few hours, the ESA said.
The spacecraft’s planned docking with the station was aborted on Wednesday and postponed till Thursday "due to an incorrect value associated with the on board computer," NASA said.
The spacecraft was launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on February 19. About 5,500 pounds of research equipment, cargo and supplies are packed into the spacecraft.
Earlier on Wednesday, Russia’s cargo spacecraft Progress MS-05 set course towards the International Space Station. Its docking is scheduled for February 24.
