ISS Crew Discusses Dragon Arrival

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 31 Flight Engineers Don Pettit and Joe Acaba of NASA and Flight Engineer Andre Kuipers of the European Space Agency fielded questions from reporters May 26, just hours after opening the hatch to SpaceX's Dragon vehicle, the world's first commercial cargo craft launched by the private sector to assist in the resupply of the international complex. Dragon will remain berthed to Harmony until May 31, enabling the crew to unload supplies for the station's residents before it is re-grappled and released to return to Earth for a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southern California.
