Delivering the Goods
The Big Picture:
Two big deliveries were made to the International Space Station (ISS) in the last two days. Yesterday, the SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft delivered 5,700lbs of science, supplies, and hardware. Today, the Russian Progress 74 cargo spacecraft delivered 5,400lbs of food, fuel, and supplies.
What About the Goodies?
Here's a list of some of the items delivered:
*Mice for rodent research on muscle and bone loss
*Robotic leak locator to be placed outside the ISS
*Fancy Earth imaging system
*Barley seeds to test malting in microgravity (We know what's up!)
*Combustion kit to test fire flames in microgravity
Easter Eggs: NASA image above shows both the Cargo Dragon and the Progress 74 docked at ISS.
