4 New Astronauts Arrive At ISS

Shortly after SpaceX got the green light from NASA, they launched a manned mission to the International Space Station (ISS). The Dragon crew capsule blasted off on Sunday and arrived at ISS earlier this week. The spacecraft ferried 4 astronauts: three from NASA and one from Japan. The existing ISS crew of 3 included one American and two Russians. This brings the total crew of ISS up to 7 people, a bit of a crowd for an orbiting laboratory. Additionally, the new crew members brought a Baby Yoda doll with them, so there’s a cute little stowaway somewhere on ISS.
