Cool photo. Do you know who took it?

After the launch, a portion of the celebration moved to the SpaceX headquarters roof, where Dragon was visible three hours after launch. It was pretty epic.

I'm not sure if it'll be webcast and/or on NASA TV, but early tomorrow morning we start the C2 demo phase of the mission, where we demonstrate that we can navigate and move around ISS successfully. Once this is done and we get the okay from NASA, we'll berth with ISS the next day, which I believe will be shown on NASA TV.

I sent the photo to Elon & Gwynne (our CEO & President) and a bunch of other folks. People are digging the double SpaceX "swoosh".

Dragon is doing great and we're preparing for operations with ISS over the next couple of days.

Kevin Meissner, alumni of 11, is currently a structures engineer for SpaceX. He's the only team alum I know of working there. I trust there's plenty of people from FIRST involved though, including Kevin Watson ^

The ISS has captured the Dragon module. This is very very cool. Congrats SpaceX/humanity.

Re: pic: SpaceX 3:44 AM History

Thought everyone would enjoy this. some of the Apollo astronauts signed a congratutory poster to SpaceX.



This is really cool, as some of the astronauts have criticized government spending on commercial space. Elon Musk stated in an interview that he considers these critics some of his greatest heroes, and sources of inspiration.
