Dragon arrives at Station; barge and rocket bits arrive at port

The CRS-5 Dragon has arrived at the ISS with its cargo, and the crew are happy to get their groceries.  😉

Meanwhile, SpaceX’s leased self-stabilizing barge, the Marmac 300, has arrived back at port with some relatively minor damage and a few bits of the rocket on top.  Most of the rocket seems to have fallen off; control was lost in the final stages of landing, so that’s not too surprising.  They expect to be ready to go again in time for the next Falcon 9 launch at the end of the month.
