[b]Dragon now less than 100 feet from station[/b]
Having been given the command to proceed, the Dragon is now just 98 feet (30 meters) from the International Space Station (ISS). The unmanned cargo craft has reached its final planned hold point before moving to its capture location 32 feet (10 meters) below the orbiting complex.
Flight controllers at NASA's Mission Control in Houston and SpaceX's control center in Hawthorne, Calif., have estimated 9:40 a.m. CDT (1440 GMT) for the station's robotic arm to capture the Dragon for its berthing on the Harmony node.
