Dragon, the first commercial unmanned space vessel has successfully docked with the International Space Station, loaded with half a ton of provisions. The historic operation puts Dragon owner SpaceX in line with world's four mighty space agencies.

NASA astronaut Sunita Williams, along with JAXA colleague Akihiko Hoshide, captured the capsule using a robotic arm at 6:56AM ET. The duo are currently guiding the capsule into a dock. Dragon is delivering 822 pounds of supplies to the laboratory onboard the ISS, including crew supplementaries, scientific research, and hardware. Then, 18 days later, the capsule will be returned to Earth with 1,673 pounds worth of supplies.
