Photos of the Day... Last month, SpaceX's Dragon capsule came one step closer to embarking on flight CRS-2 when the fairings that will protect each of the spacecraft's two solar array wings during launch were attached to the service module. A hotfire test for the Falcon 9 rocket that will be used to initiate this mission is targeted for February 22, while CRS-2 is still scheduled for lift-off to the International Space Station on March 1.
