SpaceX cargo ship arrives at space station

MIAMI: (APP) An unmanned cargo ship packed with food and supplies for astronauts arrived safely Thursday at the International Space Station, a day after

SpaceX aborted the process due to a GPS problem.

This time, the Dragon cargo ship made a "perfect approach to the capture point," a NASA commentator said.

The space station's 57-foot (18-meter) robotic arm, operated from inside the orbiting research lab by astronauts Thomas Pesquet of France and Shane Kimbrough of the United States, reached out and grabbed the Dragon at 5:44 am (1044 GMT).

"We had a great capture," Kimbrough said. "Thomas did an awesome job."
