SpaceX made history by docking to the ISS with two astronauts inside

June 1, 2020

This was the first commercial spacecraft to dock the ISS ever.

SpaceX has made space travel history this weekend with the successful launch and docking of their commercial spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS). The rocket took off after its second attempt this month. On the previous try, bad weather caused the SpaceX team to delay the launch. This weekend, however, they had a successful liftoff. The ship carried two NASA astronauts to the ISS. Yesterday, the vessel docked and the crew disembarked on to the ISS. This is the first time in history that a commercial spacecraft has flown to space and docked the Space Station, paving the way for commercial, private space travel.
