A SpaceX Dragon spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station Monday after a Friday night launch. A Falcon 9 lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 11:50 pm EST March 6 (0450 GMT March 7) and placed the Dragon into orbit. The spacecraft, carrying 1,977 kilograms of experiments and cargo, was grappled by the station's robotic arm at 6:25 am EDT (1025 GMT) Monday and was berthed to the station later that morning. The mission is the final flight of the original cargo version of the Dragon spacecraft. Future cargo missions, under a new contract, will use a version of the Crew Dragon spacecraft. The Falcon 9 first stage used in the launch landed at Cape Canaveral, the 50th successful landing of a SpaceX booster.
