Friday morning, a SpaceX rocket launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida headed for outer space where it delivered the Dragon spacecraft filled with 4,800 pounds of cargo to orbit.

Sunday morning that craft will approach the International Space Station and astronauts on board will use a 57.7 foot-long-robot arm to capture the Dragon and affix it to the station. The capsule will stay there on the station for roughly a month before astronauts fill it up with space science and send it back to Earth to crash-land in the Pacific.

There three astronauts scheduled to be on the station who will be available to receive the resupply from SpaceX. The plan is to have NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joe Acaba capture and install the capsule on the Harmony module, according to NASA. The approach and the start of the rendezvous of the Dragon and the ISS is scheduled to begin around 4:30 a.m. EST Sunday. The actual capture is expected to happen around 6 a.m. EST, with the installation expected around 7:30 a.m. EST.

You can watch the capture as well as the installation of the craft live on NASA’s website, YouTube channel or live right here:

The Dragon is full of supplies for the astronauts as well as experiments that will be kept and conducted on the ISS. The launch of the Dragon was delayed a few times, but the delays created no dire circumstances on the station as the station is stocked with about six months of supplies.

Supplies and experiments are both attached to the outside of the Dragon as well as inside of the actual capsule. Inside of the pressurized portion of the capsule, there are experiment supplies for an investigation into the benefits of manufacturing fiber optic filaments in space or microgravity. The experiment might lead to a better process of producing fiber optic products.

There are also some supplies to make beer packed in the capsule, more specifically, there are two barley experiments. The barley was sent by Budweiser, the company hopes to become the first beer on Mars, and this initial experiment on the space station will be an important first step.

On a more technical note, a new Total and Spectral Solar Irradiance Sensor, TSIS-1, will be unpacked and used to take measurements of the sun and solar variability. There’s also a new Space Debris Sensor, SDS, that is designed to be used to detect space debris in the space around the ISS, it will actually monitor the debris impacting the station as it happens, according to NASA.
