Watch the SpaceX Dragon Attempt to Dock With the ISS Live Right Now

By Sam Gibbs on at

We saw the first private, commercial spaceship finally set off for the ISS just three days ago, but today marks its first attempt to dock with the space station and resupply those astronauts aboard. You can watch along live as they prep for a 12.30pm mating with the ISS.

It's pretty incredible to think that commercial space flight is taking over from NASA, but it's truly a reality, and you can watch along live right now. Space is so awesome, and so is NASA's Ustream channel. [Ustream via Engadget]
