The SpaceX Dragon has completed its third space station resupply mission, which is now a new record. In order to do this, SpaceX uses the Dragon capsule to bring supplies to the ISS, in addition to taking materials back. Resupply missions are vital to the work done at the ISS.
Most recently, the capsule returned from the ISS with approximately 2,700 pounds of cargo. Inside the capsule are a number of materials that NASA can study. The capsule was able to bring over 5,00 pounds of materials to the space station, in order for the ISS to continue its research projects.
Notably, one of the missions involved a space smart assistant, named CIMON.
