Dragon CRS-18 spacecraft docked to space station.
19:14

On July 27, 2019 at 16:01 UTC, the private U.S. unmanned supply spacecraft, the "Dragon” SpX-18 (CRS-18 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 US astronaut Nick Hague at 13:11 UTC. The Dragon spacecraft was maneuvered into position and attached to a berthing port on the space station's Harmony module. This docking marked the 18th time a Dragon spaceship has reached the space station, counting a demonstration flight in 2012. The Dragon spacecraft delivered 2312 kilograms of supplies, equipment and research investigations for the station’s 6-person Expedition 60 crew.
