NASA And International Space Station Watching A Space Dragon!

Yes I know this has nothing to do with my Tiny Garden. But it is an event that should not go unnoticed or be over looked. Is this Americas new re-entry into space after retiring NASA’s Space Shuttle’s?

Privately financed Spacex – Dragon capsule arrived at the International Space Station for historic docking.

This event went almost unnoticed by U.S. and International New media.
This may very well be the biggest event in space right after the U.S. moon landing in July 1969!

SpaceX Dragon arrives at space station in historic first (docking)

U.S. astronaut Donald Pettit said ‘(Houston) Looks like we’ve got us a dragon by the tail.” U.S. astronaut Donald Pettit used the space station’s 58-foot robot arm to snare the gleaming white Dragon after a few hours of extra checks and maneuvers. The two vessels came together while sailing above Australia.

  1. I have to admit to a few tears watching the launch video the other day, though today it was all about loving Don Petitt’s words. It’s been a while since we’ve had an awesome real-life space quote to revel in and that one is way up there on the awesome scale.

  2. They brought Scotty’s (from the original Star Trek series) cremated remains (along with others) up there with that capsule too! Kinda cool. 🙂

  3. This is so exciting–for those of us who are space nuts (or who have been forced to stay up until 4 am five nights in a row by a child of ours who is absolutely determined to be the first woman living on Mars just to hopefully see five rockets launch off the coast of Virginia and blah blah blah I can’t remember the rest because i’m still so sleep deprived). But, hey … yay for space. No, seriously. Yay. 🙂
