The American reusable spacecraft Crew Dragon successfully docked to the International Space Station. Three astronauts and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin are on duty. This was announced on Tuesday, March 5, by the American Space Agency (NASA).

It is specified that the ship docked automatically to the module of the American segment of the ISS.

In addition to the Russian, the crew included NASA astronauts Matthew Dominic, Michael Barratt and Jennette Epps. They will stay on the ISS until mid-August this year.

During the mission they will have to conduct about two hundred scientific experiments.

Let us remind you that American spacecraft Crew Dragon from SpaceX went to the ISS on Monday, March 4. The launch of the spacecraft was supposed to take place earlier, but it was postponed due to bad weather conditions.

Russian Alexander Grebenkin became the fourth Russian cosmonaut to travel to the ISS aboard Crew Dragon as part of the cross-flight program between Russia and the United States.
