SpaceX made history today, as its Dragon 9 capsule became the first commercial spacecraft to dock with the International Space Station (ISS).


SpaceX is successful with it’s second attempt at launching Falcon 9, the first private mission to the International Space Station.



“Looks like we got us a dragon by the tail.”

Astronauts aboard the ISS use the Canadarm to “berth” the first commercial space capsule to arrive at the station, SpaceX Dragon 9.


A new space age begins as the first privately owned vessel, SpaceX Dragon 9, reaches the International Space Station.



Crew members of the International Space Station open the hatch of the newly arrived SpaceX Dragon 9 spacecraft early Saturday morning.



Astronauts on board the International Space Station have released the unmanned Dragon cargo capsule.

The American SpaceX capsule made history last Friday by becoming the first privately produced craft to visit the orbiting laboratory.
