Space X has docked with the ISS! Just a stepping point, there is still a long way to go. But, is this the start of a truly commercial and capitalistic space exploration era? One which is driven by VCs, IPOs and shareholder pressures? Should be interesting anyways - good luck to them. They will need it. Love him or hate him, Elon does stick to his guns (Tesla etc...). Also, shows how far things have moved on from the "super-serious" cold war era. Sounds like a 16yr old teenager too: Well, to be honest, I would've said something similar as well - maybe even a high five.
