A robotic Progress cargo ship docked at the International Space Station early Monday (Dec. 9), just one day after the arrival of a U.S. Dragon supply ship built by SpaceX.
The Russian-built Progress 74 spacecraft linked up with the space station's Pirs docking compartment at 5:35 a.m. EST (1035 GMT) to deliver 2.7 tons of fresh supplies for the outpost's six-person Expedition 61 crew. The two spacecraft were sailing 260 miles (418 kilometers) above the Yellow Sea, east of Shanghai, when they docked, NASA officials said.
