SpaceX Dragon Cargo Spacecraft Arrives At ISS; Delivers CIMON 2 To Replace Robot That Had Meltdown

SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station Sunday. The spacecraft carried many items of value to ISS, including an upgraded version of an AI-powered floating robot that lost its cool when interacting with its astronaut handler about a year ago. The first CIMON had somewhat of a meltdown at the ISS, accusing astronaut Alexander Gerst of being “mean” and then demanding to know whether Gerst liked it or not.
