SpaceX launched the Dragon ship Wednesday (Dec. 5) from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Wednesday (Dec. 5).

It is the second space station visit for this recycled Dragon; it was there past year, too.

If you're not convinced by the conspiracy theorists' arguments, but still want to see some cool spaceships recorded by the ISS, the European Space Agency recorded this incredible footage of an MS-10 cargo spacecraft launching from Russia's Baikonur Cosmodrome on November 22.

The holiday food includes smoked turkey, green bean casserole, candied yams, cranberry sauce and fruitcake.

Recently on the ISS came a new crew on the ship "Union". "There's also some fresh fruit for the crew".

Once hatches are opened to the Dragon, the crew first will move high-priority science equipment and supplies into the station, including the rodent habitat and items that need to be transferred to the station's freezers.

The latest space rendezvous is the 16th cargo delivery mission of SpaceX for NASA.

"The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station", the message on the screen says.

Mounted in the cargo ship's unpressurized "trunk" section was another 2,150 pounds of gear, including an experimental robotic refueling system and a laser instrument that will measure the height of forest canopies around the world.

Two other supply ships are attached to the space station: One Russian and the other sent by NASA's other commercial shipper, Northrop Grumman.

It is expected to splash down in the Pacific Ocean once it returns to Earth and will be retrieved by a recovery ship.
