Dragon brought fresh supplies and scientific materials to the ISS – about 3 tons of cargo in total. Among the 2,950 kg of cargo delivered were materials for a NASA scientific experiment called AWE to study gravitational waves in the Earth’s atmosphere and the ILLUMA-T project to test high-speed laser communications in orbit. Dragon also delivered holiday treats to the ISS for astronauts, including pumpkin spice cappuccino, turkey and cranberry sauce.

If all goes according to plan, Dragon will spend about a month on the ISS. The ship will then return to Earth with a cargo weighing 1,724 kg.
