It is great to see an alternate to the Russian launches for servicing the space station. Perhaps this spurs a competition for space station services and may lead to new entrants? MP Divakar

Frank, this one went like clock work. Dragon approached to 30 meters from the station, NASA said "Go," they moved to 10 meters and the station crew reached out and grabbed it -- ahead of schedule. The danger now is complacency.

That is some really expensive ice cream! But kudos to SpaceX. Still a few kinks to work out in satellite deployment, but it looks like they are well on their way.
