Dragon SpX-11 Cargo Mission to ISS

The Dragon SpX-11 cargo spacecraft is set for a rendezvous with the International Space Station on Monday, two days after lifting off from Florida’s Space Coast atop a Falcon 9 rocket. Approaching the orbiting complex from directly below, Dragon will come within reach of the station’s Canadarm2 for a robotic capture followed by berthing to the Harmony module for a month-long stay. 

This mission marks the first re-flight of the Dragon cargo vehicle after visiting ISS back in 2014 on the SpX-4 resupply mission that lasted 34 days.
