Dragon - the large, commercial bell shaped craft created by company SpaceX delivered last month 1,000 pounds of provisions to the International Space Station (ISS) and brought back more than 1,400 pounds of old equipment. It is on display at company's rocket factory in McGregor and looks "almost untouched", as SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk told the reporters. He is also CEO of Palo Alto based Tesla Motors. Dragon was built in collaboration with NASA. NASA's Administration commented that nine days test flight was a real success.
SJPL has an interesting book for kids at the library - Living and working aboard the International Space Station by Henry Holden.
