Commence Docking Procedures!

In a little under two hours, if all goes well, there will be a rocket launch to the ISS via Space X (you can catch NASA’s live feed here).

If you want to wile away a couple hours, you can get good at docking the Dragon capsule with the ISS in a simulator using similar controls to what the astronauts are about to use.

Be warned though, it takes patience and precision. But as gastronaut Alton Brown would say, “Your patience will be rewarded.”

(by the way, thanks to a friend far more skilled and speedy at docking, do a 180 from the station for an Easter egg).
