Cape Canaveral, Fla. – SpaceX’s Dragon supply ship arrived at the International Space Station on Monday, delivering 5,000 pounds of much-needed cargo to the crew.

The six astronauts onboard were getting a bit low on supplies after a month of launch delays for the Dragon.

NASA pays SpaceX and Orbital Sciences Corp. for shipments. However, Orbital’s rockets are grounded until next year following the explosion of the Antares rocket at Wallops Island back in October.
