DRAGON CRS-5, also known as SpX-5, is a cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station, contracted to NASA, The Dragon spacecraft is packed with more than 2.5 tons of scientific experiments, provisions and maintenance items. Among the supplies packed inside are spacewalk tools and equipment to help prepare the space station to receive commercial crew vehicles, an IMAX camera for filming during four space station increments, and science payloads that will enable model organism research using fruit flies and will study flatworms to better understand wound healing in space. The Dragon's total internal payload includes 1,272 pounds of science and research gear, 1,080 pounds of crew provisions, 1,495 pounds of vehicle hardware, 35 pounds of computer tools, 51 pounds of spacesuit equipment, and 86 pounds of Russian hardware. NASA's Cloud-Aerosol Transport System is bolted inside Dragon's unpressurized trunk. The space station's robotics system will unpack the CATS instrument and mount it outside the station to monitor cloud and aerosol coverage, which directly impacts global climate.
