Under the news radar

Something which is no doubt going to be mostly ignored by the media, but which I personally think is noteworthy (not necessarily good or bad, but noteworthy). The Dragon has finally docked with the ISS. For those a little behind the times, Dragon is a commercial space vehicle. Now that there is money in space (remember the plan to bring asteroids into earth orbit and mine them from a few weeks ago), I suspect we'll see more investment over the next decade or so. Which is cool. Sad though, that we're going to space to make money rather than explore though.
