Crew Dragon docks at International Space Station

Jun 01, 2020 11:41 IST

A SpaceX capsule carrying two NASA astronauts Robert L. Behnken and Douglas G. Hurley docked at the International Space Station on Sunday, after a historic launch that marked the first time humans had ever traveled to orbit in a spacecraft built and operated by a private company. Once the docking was completed, Mr. Hurley congratulated staff at SpaceX and NASA and said “It’s been a real honor to be just a small part of this nine-year endeavor since the last time a United States spaceship has docked with the International Space Station.” The docking indicated that the first portion of the test flight with crew aboard was successful. The trip will be considered a complete success once the astronauts return to Earth in the near future, opening the way for more travel to the space station and orbit by astronauts and perhaps space tourists in the years to come.
