Private space travel is here

The Dragon capsule docked with the International Space Station.

This is significant because SpaceX privately developed and funded the Falcon 9 lift vehicle and Dragon capsule.

The Dragon had to pass quite a few tests before it was allowed to draw near the ISS and then be grabbed by the remote arm.

Very cool. Congratulations to the SpaceX team.
