Dragon CRS-11 spacecraft docked to space station.

On June 5, 2017 at 13:52 UTC the private U.S. unmanned supply spacecraft, the "Dragon” SpX-11 (CRS-11 flight), was successfully docked to the International Space Station. The linkup operation was carried out with the help of the giant 17-meter Canadarm. The capture with Canadarm-2 was performed by American astronauts Jack Fisher and Peggy Whitson. The Dragon spacecraft was maneuvered into position and attached to a berthing port on the space station's Harmony module. This docking marked the 11th time a Dragon spaceship has reached the space station, counting a demonstration flight in 2012.
