SpaceX Dragon-5 docked with the International Space Station on 12 January 2015.

ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti assisted NASA astronaut Butch Wilmore as he operated the International Space Station’s 17 m-long robotic arm to capture the five-tonne supply vessel floating 10 m from the weightless research centre. The spacecraft brought many experiments for the astronauts to run, involving fruit flies, flatworms, human and shellfish immune cells.
