Historic space flight: How to watch the Crew Dragon spacecraft dock with the International Space Station

Docking scheduled for 10:29AM EST
Spacex Launch

SpaceX’s second attempt to launch two NASA astronauts was a success on Saturday.  The crew is on its way to the International Space Station, set to dock at 10:29AM EST.  This marks the first crewed spaceflight to take off from US soil since 2011.  It is also a milestone for SpaceX, who had never before attempted a crewed mission.  They have now launched the first privately developed spacecraft into Earth’s orbit.

The Crew Dragon has an automatic docking system which is expected to be used for this morning’s docking.  NASA and SpaceX is keeping their livestream running until the capsule, carrying astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, docks with the International Space Station.  The feed is available here:
