It is a milestone in aerospace history, for the first time in history, the aerospace company SpaceZ launched an already-used Dragon cargo ship to the International Space Station (ISS), carrying 6,000 lbs (2,721 kilograms) of supplies and science experiments.

The spacecraft successfully launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Dragon was captured by Expedition 52 Flight Engineer Jack Fischer of NASA using the station’s Canadian-built robotic arm. Ground controllers then took control of the robotic arm, maneuvering Dragon to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module, where it was installed and bolted into place. Dragon is scheduled to remain at the station for a month before it is unberthed and deorbited for a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.
