An American Milestone: SpaceX’s Private Dragon Capsule Docks with International Space Station

Those who contend that America’s best days are behind her couldn’t be more wrong: Here’s video of the privately-created SpaceX Dragon supply capsule docking with the International Space Station. There are no crew inside the capsule, and the docking is automated.

Many peoples cannot yet design and launch automated capsules like this, and America has now done so privately, and with an efficiency and skill that will make other, even greater projects possible.

So very admirable —
