SpaceX Dragon Capsule Docks at Space Station

SpaceX Dragon Capsule Arrives at Space Station With Precious Cargo

     The unmanned Dragon spacecraft was captured by station astronauts using a robotic arm after an apparently flawless approach by the cargo-laden space capsule, which was built by the private spaceflight company SpaceX. It is the first of 12 resupply flights SpaceX will fly for NASA under a $1.6 billion deal.

     A small but important step to the eventual opening of space for commercial ventures and exploration!
