ISS Crew Prepares for Dragon's Arrival

Florida Today reports that the International Space Station crew is ready for the arrival of the SpaceX Dragon cargo module in February.

U.S. flight engineer Don Pettit likened the arrival of the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft to the pioneering opening of the American West in the 19th century.

“It’s sort of the first of many wagon-training wagons coming up here to bring us supplies,” Pettit said Wednesday.

“I think for all of us, we’re very excited about it,” added U.S. astronaut Dan Burbank, the current station commander.
