Dragon arrived at the International Space Station on July 27, 2019 and was captured at 6:11 a.m. PDT while flying about 267 statute miles over the coast of southern Chile. The spacecraft was then installed on the Harmony module for the duration of its four-week stay at the orbiting laboratory.
Filled with approximately 5,000 pounds of supplies and payloads, Dragon launched aboard a Falcon 9 rocket on July 25, 2019 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The Dragon spacecraft supporting the CRS-18 mission previously supported the CRS-6 mission in April 2015 and the CRS-13 mission in December 2017. Dragon is the only spacecraft currently flying that’s capable of returning significant amounts of cargo to Earth.
