SpaceX Crew Dragon Docks With International Space Station After Successful Launch

On Saturday, we reported about the "historic" launch of SpaceX's Crew Dragon on the company's Falcon 9 rocket. It was an event which NASA called "a big night for United States of America". Now, the Crew Dragon's subsequent task of docking with the International Space Station has also been a success, with Bloomberg's Dana Hull calling the test flight a "smooth rendezvous". The docking with the ISS marks the first time that Crew Dragon has ever flown and puts the pressure on SpaceX's private company competition at Boeing, who also aims to work with NASA.

While the flight's only cargo this time around was Ripley, a female mannequin as no humans were on board for the test flight, the Crew Dragon's success will almost assure that it will carry passengers into space this summer on its next flight.
