CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A SpaceX cargo ship arrived at the International Space Station, delivering the company’s 20th batch of gear and treats. The Dragon capsule reached the orbiting lab after launching late March 6. NASA astronauts Andrew Morgan and Jessica Meir used the station’s robot arm to capture the spacecraft. The 4,300-pound (1,950-kilogram) shipment contains science experiments and equipment, as well as special goodies for the three-person crew aloft for months: grapefruit, tomatoes, Skittles, Reese’s Pieces and Hot Tamales.
