Dragon By The Tail
March 13, 2013
This is one of a series of photos taken by the Expedition 34 crew members aboard the International Space Station during the March 3 approach, capture and docking of the SpaceX Dragon. A blue and white Earth and the blackness of space share the background for this image, featuring Dragon in the grasp of the Space Station Remote Manipulator System or Canadarm2. The spacecraft begins a scheduled three-week-long stay at the orbital outpost.
