NASA's Space to Ground: Past, Present, Future | Week of March 17, 2023

NASA's Space to Ground is your weekly update on what's happening aboard the International Space Station.  On March 16, 2023, a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft docked to the forward-facing port of the International Space Station’s Harmony module to at 7:31 a.m. EDT for the CRS-27 Commercial Resupply Mission. Dragon delivered over 6,200 pounds of research, hardware, and supplies. 

Afterward, NASA Flight Engineers Frank Rubio, Stephen Bowen, Woody Hoburg, and Flight Engineer Sultan Alneyadi from the United Arab Emirates spent time unloading cargo from the spacecraft. Alneyadi and Rubio were specifically tasked with unpacking double-cold bags for transporting samples into the station’s Minus Eighty Laboratory Freezer, or MELFI.
