SpaceX CRS 27

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2023-033A

Description

The second-generation Dragon cargo vehicle is a space capsule designed by SpaceX to provide supplies to the International Space Station based on the crewed Crew Dragon capsule.

The mission is SpaceX’s 27th resupply flight to the space station, and its arrival continues a busy stretch of activity for the astronauts and cosmonauts aboard the orbiting complex. NASA astronaut Woody Hoburg is monitoring the Dragon spacecraft’s approach and docking, standing by to send commands to halt or abort the rendezvous using a control panel inside the space station.

This reusable Dragon spacecraft is making its third visit to the research lab. SpaceX began launching cargo missions to the space station in 2012 under a multibillion-dollar Commercial Resupply Services contract with NASA.
