They helped control a giant robotic arm to capture the spacecraft carrying 5,500 pounds of research, crew material and hardware, according to the NASA International Space Station blog.

It was released from Florida two days ago.

"Capture confirmed! Dragon is now attached to the robotic arm of @Space_Station," SpaceX told Twitter.
