Tally Ho Dragon!
The first doscking of a commercial spaceship at the International Space Station orbiting above Earth took place today, as SpaceX's Dragon (that's it up above) capsule arrived with supplies for the crew orbiting high above Earth.
So whats next fr SpaceX and commercial spaceflight? My mind swiftly goes to space prospecting, Lunar colonies and the journey ever outward.
For those unaware, SpaceX (Space Exploration Technologies Corporation) is a space transport company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. SpaceX was founded in June 2002 by PayPal and Tesla Motors co-founder Elon Musk. These guys want to push space-going technologies. Which calls to my not-so-inner child who has been continually frustrated by the slow advance of space travel.
Looking forward to see what will come out of SpaceX!
