SpaceX stories

 
Two days after launching from Cape Canaveral, the SpaceX Dragon spacecraft has successfully docked with the International Space Station. The Dragon carried mission critical supplies and helping of vanilla and chocolate swirl ice cream, because if anyone deserves ice cream, it's astronauts.
 
A few months ago we were given the opportunity to witness a test flight of SpaceX's mission to the International Space Station (ISS). After a high-profile aborted attempt, the spacecraft finally launched. But that was just the dress rehearsal. Last night the real future of NASA began.
 
Elon Musk, who helped launch PayPal, Tesla Motors and most recently SpaceX, is pretty dang serious about getting our asses to Mars. Before Curiosity, colonies on Mars were knocked back to the 2030s — or beyond, even. Now? We may only have to wait "12 to 15 years."
 
When SpaceX's Dragon capsule successfully splashed down into the warm embrace of the Pacific ocean a few months ago, it meant that commercial spaceflight had finally arrived and was here to stay. We covered the mission from start to finish, but a new video from SpaceX itself (with lots of unique footage from launch to landing) is definitely worth a few minutes of your time.
 
NASA and SpaceX have decided on a time for the latter's Dragon commercial space capsule to return to our planet. Once again you'll be able to watch it live, but this time you may actually be able to sleep in. UPDATE: Dragon successfully splashed down at 11:42 A.M. PDT. See more here.
