"SpaceX Mission Success! Dragon to Space Station."


"History is Made! The SpaceX C-2 Capsule linked with the ISS at 9:56 a.m. EDT May 25."


"This is the first time in history a privately-owned commercial vehicle has linked up with the International Space Station."


"The capsule carried non-critical supplies, food and experiments for use on board the space station."
