SpaceX’s Dragon capsule docked with the International Space Station on Sunday 19 hours after the Falcon 9 rocket launched two NASA astronauts into space from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.

Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken become the first astronauts to make the trip aboard a privately funded craft and it was the first low orbit launch to take place in the United States since the end of the Space Shuttle Program in 2011. EFE-EPA
