Sorry, I've been glued to my screens (yes, plural) as much as possible.

 

We've been waiting for this for a long time. And it's everything we wanted so far. :yes:

Bob & Doug arrive at ISS Sunday morning at 1029 Eastern

 

They're doing 2 manual control tests, one already completed then another close to ISS.

 

Dragon C206 has been christened "Endeavour"

Just a little further to go and SpaceX will have "won the competition" ... not that we had any doubt -- and despite the shenanigans behind the scenes.

 

Incredible day, space-affairs wise.

Looking at those screens via the over-the-shoulder cam definitely adds a 2001/Star Trek LCARS touch.  

 

I hear the Crew Dragon for Crew-1 in August is being prepped, and the crew training is well along.

I know they have to be careful and go slow, but maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan this is painfully slow! 😛
