Dragon Docking Done

SpaceX, a private company building rockets and now the “Dragon” spacecraft, intended to carry both cargo and people in to space has completed an important step today.  In unmanned tests the Dragon successfully docked with the International Space Station.

As a science fiction writer I find this a very exciting development, bringing closer the day when ordinary folk will be able to travel into space.
