Last weekend, the SpaceX company launched the Dragon spacecraft into Earth orbit, carrying 2,170 kg of items and equipment for scientific experiments on the International Space Station (ISS).

This is SpaceX's 23rd shipment for the US Space Agency (NASA) in nearly a decade.

After leaving the launch pad at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, the Falcon 9 rocket's first stage separated from the Dragon spacecraft and landed gently on one of SpaceX's unmanned spacecraft in the Pacific Ocean.

The massive spacecraft model called "A Shortfall of Gravitas" is the latest in a fleet of three unmanned spacecrafts dedicated to recall the propulsion layer falling back to Earth and bring it back to the port for reuse.

The newly launched Dragon cargo spacecraft carries a variety of scientific instruments, including the soon-to-be-tested robotic arm inside the ISS's newest airlock.

To test the technology, the robotic arm flips switches and pushes buttons to demonstrate its ability to perform routine tasks.  Along with the robotic arm, the 7-member crew on the ISS will also receive some fresh food such as ice cream, avocado, lemon ...

During this trip of the Dragon spacecraft, the Girl Scouts of America sent ants, saltwater shrimp and plants to the ISS as test subjects.  Meanwhile, scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison submitted seeds of rat's ear watercress, a small flowering plant used in genetic research.

In addition, samples of concrete, solar cells and some other materials were also brought to the ISS in this shipment.

The experimental robotic arm of Japanese startup Gitai will be put into orbit for the first time.  This robot will try to fasten objects together with screws as well as take on other manual tasks that astronauts often do in a zero-gravity environment.

The first tests will be carried out inside the space station.  Gitai's chief technology officer, Toyotaka Kozuki, said the company's next-generation robot will will take risks into space to carry out repair missions.

In early 2025, a team of these robots could help build bases on the Moon and engage in mining on the Moon for valuable resources.

NASA turned to SpaceX and other companies in the US to deliver cargo and crew to the space station after the space shuttle program ended in 2011.
