Cool. Let’s hope this is just the first of many – SpaceX’s Dragon craft makes historic hookup with space station:
Once the fix was made, Dragon returned to the 30-meter checkpoint and moved in for the final approach. When the craft reached a distance of 10 meters (33 feet), NASA astronaut Don Pettit used the station’s 17-meter-long (60-foot-long) robotic arm to grab hold of the Dragon’s grapple attachment at 9:56 a.m. ET.
“It looks like we’ve got us a Dragon by the tail,” Pettit told NASA’s Mission Control.
