    After a 36 hour journey, the Dragon cargo ship has made an Easter Sunday delivery of food, science experiments and supplies to the crew aboard the International Space Station.

    The freighter was sent by SpaceX, one of two private firms hired by NASA to supply the ISS after the space shuttles were retired in 2011.

    Dragon will be reloaded with science samples and equipment no longer needed on the station and returned to Earth in about a month.
