(3 March 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. Earth's horizon and the blackness of space form the backdrop for this image, featuring Dragon, framed by one of the Cupola's windows, and being docked to the orbital outpost with the aid of the Space Station Remote Manipulator System or Canadarm2. The spacecraft begins its scheduled three-week-long stay at the orbiting space station.
