Hugs and cheers followed NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley as they made their way from the Dragon capsule into the International Space Station just before 3:30 p.m. EDT Sunday, marking the first successful leg of America’s return to a full-fledged space program.
But you probably already knew that, if you’re like most Americans (and millions of others around the world) who beat all TV and social media ratings tuning in to watch the Falcon 9 rocket lifting the SpaceX Dragon capsule into orbit on Saturday afternoon. It was truly a spectacle to behold and a team effort nine years in the making.
We’ve put together a slideshow of some of our favorite images provided by NASA, from the preparations to liftoff to the entry into earth's orbit. We’re cheering along with the rest of the world and enjoying this new ride into space.
