Busy traffic at the International Space Station (April 2016)

Another beautiful photo, again by Tim Peake. This time, it was taken during the Expedition 47 on April 6, 2016, as the International Space Station flew over Madagascar. The photo is showing three of the five spacecraft currently docked to the station. The station crew was waiting the scheduled launch on April 8, of the third resupply vehicle in three weeks: a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft, which was carrying 6,900 pounds (3,130 kilograms) of science, crew supplies and hardware.
