A "Dragon" supply freighter with almost 3500 kilograms of cargo has successfully docked with the International Space Station ISS. On board the unmanned mission are, among other things, scientific experiments and food. At the time of docking, the ISS was flying over the Pacific, according to a live broadcast by the US space agency Nasa on the Internet.

It is the 26th resupply mission by commercial operator SpaceX in collaboration with Nasa. The supply freighter is scheduled to land back on Earth after about a month.

According to Nasa, the deliveries included solar panels for power supply, a special type of tomato for astronauts to eat healthier and a blood test with a microscope, which is intended to facilitate medical diagnoses for people in space. As a surprise for the ISS astronauts, ice cream was also on board, it said on Sunday during the broadcast. SpaceX's first Dragon capsule flew to the ISS in 2012.
