A cargo delivery has made its way to the International Space Station. 

Astronauts on board the ISS used a robotic arm to bring the supply spacecraft into the station Sunday. 

NASA says the more than 2700-pound shipment includes crew provisions, spare parts and dozens of science experiments to be tested out by astronauts. 

The delivery marks the first successful cargo shipment from Virginia-based commercial spaceflight company, Orbital Sciences Corporation.
