Mission Accomplished for David Saint-Jacques

Quebec astronaut David Saint-Jacques successfully participated on Friday in the delicate mission of the Canadian arm to catch a cargo ship for tenants of the International Space Station. It was the first time that he had been entrusted with this technically very complex task.

David Saint-Jacques, who helped his NASA colleague Anne McClain handle the robotic arm Canadarm2, can call out a mission accomplished: for the Easter meal, the other members of the crew and he can savor fresh food .

The cargo includes some Canadian specialties, such as maple products, and a bison chili, a dish specially transported to David Saint-Jacques, according to Danielle Cormier, mission controller at the Canadian Space Agency.

The Cygnus cargo ship, which started a day and a half ago from Wallops Island, Virginia, also delivered a number of essential technical devices for the space station’s work. Among them, a bioanlysator that will allow astronauts to do blood tests directly on board, rather than having to send their samples to Earth.
