two main objectives met

The SpaceX Dragon capsule, loaded with supplies and equipment, was attached to the International Space Station this morning.

This is the organisation's third mission to the ISS. After resolving the helium leak, things went swimmingly. A new and interesting aspect to this mission is that they are attempting to recover the booster stage rocket. That's pretty neat. If they do this successfully, it will dramatically drive down costs.
