SpaceX Update: Dragon Now Mated to Space Station

The Dragon capsule is carrying over a half-ton of supplies and equipment for the astronauts on ISS, most of it being scientific hardware. The next flight to ISS, scheduled for Mar. 28, is a Russian Soyuz TMA-08M that will carry three more astronauts. On Apr. 18, a European Space Agency Automated Transfer Vehicle (named Albert Einstein) will bring several tons of supplies up, including food. A week later, on Apr. 24, a Russian Progress capsule will bring more supplies as well.
