On December 8, 2019 at 12:47 UTC, the private U.S. unmanned supply spacecraft, the "Dragon” SpX-19 (CRS-19 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 Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano at 10:05 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 19th time a Dragon spaceship has reached the space station, counting a demonstration flight in 2012. The Dragon spacecraft delivered 2617 kilograms of supplies, equipment and research investigations for the station’s crew.
