SpaceX Dragon carrying private Ax-1 astronauts docks at International Space Station


The groundbreaking Ax-1 mission has arrived at its off-Earth destination.

A SpaceX Dragon capsule carrying the four Ax-1 mission astronauts docked with the International Space Station (ISS) at 8:29 a.m. EDT (1229 GMT) today (April 9), ending an orbital chase that began Friday morning (April 8) with a launch atop a Falcon 9 rocket. The docking was delayed about 44 minutes due to a video issue on the station, but everything went smoothly.
