Horizons crew arrives at the International Space Station


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency (ESA) shows the members of the Horizons crew receiving a warm welcome by astronauts at the International Space Station. The crew successfully docked at the Space Station after orbiting the Earth 34 times over the course of two days.

Led by German astronaut Alexander Gerst, the Horizons crew will conduct over 50 experiments while onboard the spacecraft, including the development of robots that can assist humans in future explorations of the Solar System.
