The International Space Station docked SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule on Friday. It was the first time in history that a commercial rocket delivered supplies to the ISS. 

The International Space Station crew opened up the Dragon’s hatch around five o’clock this morning. A 60-foot long robotic arm pulled in the privately-owned SpaceX Dragon Capsule.

Dragon will drop off 1,200 pounds of supplies at the International Space Station and will also pick up equipment.

The Dragon Capsule lifted off on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida on Tuesday.
