Dragon about to be grappled by ISS robotic arm on CRS-3 mission (NASA) The crew of the International Space Station grappled and berthed a Dragon cargo spacecraft that arrived at the station Sunday morning. The ISS crew used the station's Canadarm2 robotic arm to grapple the Dragon spacecraft at 7:14 am EDT (1114 GMT), berthing it to the station's Harmony node nearly three hours later. The Dragon, launched by SpaceX on Friday afternoon, carries about 2,100 kilograms of cargo for the station, including experiments and other supplies for the crew. Dragon will spend four weeks attached to the station before departing with more than 1,500 kilograms of equipment and experiment results to be returned to Earth.
