As one or two readers may recall, SpaceX made history this May, when its Dragon capsule became the first commercial spacecraft to reach the International Space Station. Although various snippets of video were released at the time, today the company released a “highlight reel” of the mission, which includes some pretty compelling footage.
The video features shots of the May 22nd launch, followed by the Dragon’s trip to the ISS, the deployment of its solar panels, its grappling, docking and entry at the station, and its splashdown in the Pacific on May 31st.
