Dragon COTS 2,3 – Day 3 – Update


At 1930 UTC on 24 May 2012, Dragon is located several hundred kilometers ahead of the International Space Station (ISS). It is scheduled to move above, then behind the ISS and eventually below as it moves back into the position from which it began today’s activities. From there, it will begin FD 4 rendezvous tests and eventual berthing.
