Space Station’s Spacex Capsule Zips Up During Practice Drive

SpacexDragon spaceship of Space Exploration Technologies flew efficiently all the way through practice drive on Thursday in the International Space Station, clearing the path for this to turn out to be the 1st private vessel that reached orbital outpost.

If Dragon carries on to function as planned, on Friday this will fly within around 9 meters (30 feet) of the $100 billion station and blackout its directional thrusters as a result the crew of the station can snare this with the crane of  robot and clasp it on top of the docking port.

Dragon underwent a practice drive early on Thursday in the station, approaching as near as around1.5 miles (2.4 km) as the 2 vessels ascended round the planet in  17,500 miles in an hour (28,164 kph).

Astronauts on board the station demonstrated they could control Dragon through ordering the capsule that is unmanned to switch on and off the strobe light.
