Dragon makes
the world’s first
private delivery in space.

Space X docks
its space craft
with the International Space Station.

Dragon flies
within thirty feet
of the orbiting station.

The robotic arm
grabs the capsule,
and mates it with the station’s dock.

Astronauts upload
a half ton
of food, clothing, and other supplies.

SpaceX becomes
NASA’s first
private space delivery contractor.

Private contractors
will ferry
astronauts to the station within five years.

NASA says
we’re looking at
regular services from SpaceX.

It’s a science-fiction dream come true. And you gotta love the name, “Dragon.
