Elon Musk's SpaceX completed the successful docking of its Dragon vehicle onto the International Space Center as it orbited about 250 miles above earth. The successful mission paves the way for final approval by NASA to eventually transport people to space, which may happen as soon as July. The Dragon vehicle carried a test dummy and almost 200 pounds of cargo. The Dragon vehicle will stay at the I.S.S. until Friday before attempting reeentry. “It should be fine, but that'll be a thing to make sure it works on re-entry,” Elon Musk, who owns SpaceX told reporters who watched the docking with him. “Everything we know so far is looking positive. Unless something goes wrong I should think we'll be flying [people] this year; this summer, hopefully.” The initial “soft capture” occurred occurred at 5:51 a.m. Eastern time as the I.S.S. flew north of New Zealand. The final “hard capture” was confirmed about ten minutes later. U.S. astronaut Anne McClain and Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques, who watched the docking from the I.S.S. ‘cupola’ bay window, had a full range of options including holding or aborting the Dragon’s docking attempt at the first sign of trouble.
