A SpaceX Dragon cargo ship arrives at the International Space Station on December 8, 2018 to deliver 5,600 pounds of supplies for the outpost's Expedition 57 crew.
The Dragon capsule pulled up at the orbiting lab Saturday, three days after launching from Florida.
It took two tries to get the Dragon close enough for capture.
Loaded in the Dragon's pressurized compartment were 2,286 pounds of science gear, including a rodent habitat carrying 40 mice, 670 pounds of crew clothing and other supplies, 421 pounds of space station hardware, 88 pounds of computer equipment, 33 pounds of spacewalk tools and suit components and 24 pounds of gear carried up for the Russians.
In a video posted online, taken from a live feed from NASA's International Space Station, a odd object seems to float above Earth.
It was a successful take two - just an hour-and-a-half late - after NASA switched to another TDRS (T-driss) satellite.
The Dragon holds everything the station astronauts need for Christmas dinner.
"On this resupply craft they also have some special things like candied yams, green bean casserole and even some Christmas cookies", NASA spokesperson Leah Cheshier said during live commentary.
It is the second space station visit for this recycled Dragon; it was there past year, too.
The first-stage booster used in Wednesday's launch is back at port, after landing at sea instead of Cape Canaveral. SpaceX towed the booster to shore for possible future reuse, as well as for an investigation into what went wrong.
SpaceX has been making station shipments for NASA since 2012. This is its 16th delivery under contract.
