SpaceX's Dragon cargo craft in orbit below the International Space Station...

Capturing a #Dragon! While the International Space Station (@ISS) was traveling more than 250 miles over the Earth, astronauts Ricky Arnold (@Astro_Ricky) and Drew Feustel (@Astro_Feustel) captured SpaceX's Dragon cargo craft this morning using the space station’s #Canadarm2 robotic arm. Following that, SpaceX's #Dragon cargo craft was bolted into place and is now attached to the International Space Station where it will be for the next month delivering more than 5,900 pounds of research, crew supplies and hardware to the orbiting laboratory.

Astronaut Ricky Arnold (@Astro_Ricky) shared this view of the Dragon cargo spacecraft as it traversed Italy en route to the space station earlier today.

If we could just move a bit faster we could have several space craft capable of carrying Astronauts into space.  Is the Dragon due to become manned or is it to remain just a cargo carrier?
