A Spacecraft's Journey to the Space Station

On December 5, 2018, NASA launched a 6,000-pound care package to the International Space Station aboard a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft. The spacecraft orbited Earth until it reached the station three days later. This image, taken by astronaut Alex Gerst on December 8, 2018, shows the Dragon capsule passing over the remote and pristine Ukok Plateau, located in the Altai Mountains of southwestern Siberia, Russia. Four countries come together in this region: Russia, Kazakhstan, China, and Mongolia. The plateau, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to the endangered snow leopard. Altai Republic, Russia, 649772
