SpaceX Dragon Docked with the International Space Station.

On July 20, two days after the SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft launched from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Florida ground controllers in Houston sent commands instructing the robot arm to install Dragon on the Earth-facing side of the station's Harmony module.

During the next five weeks, crew members will unload the spacecraft and reload it with cargo to return to Earth.
