After a day in transit, a SpaceX’s cargo ship showed up on August 30 at the International Space Station (ISS), carrying ice cream and other birthday treats for NASA astronaut Megan McArthur's 50th birthday.

"No one’s ever sent me a spaceship for my birthday before. I appreciate it," Megan radioed after the capsule arrived.

Launched on August 29 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, the capsule contains lemons, cherry tomatoes, avocados and ice cream for McArthur and her six crewmates, along with a couple tons of research and other gear.



Megan is currently serving as Pilot of the NASA SpaceX Crew-2 mission to the ISS, which launched on April 23, 2021. In completing her first space mission, McArthur has logged almost 13 days in space.
