ISS catches the Dragon – level 2
People launched the Dragon spacecraft on top of a Falcon 9 rocket. The Dragon is a reusable rocket and it made history when it landed on a drone ship at sea.
The spacecraft flew to the International Space Station where a robotic arm captured it. It carried cabbage seeds, lab mice and an inflatable room, which the astronauts will test.
For only the second time in its history, there are now six crafts at the ISS. The Dragon will return to Earth with science experiments from the ISS in May.
Difficult words: launch (to make something go to space), drone (robotic), inflatable (capable of being filled with air).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
