Emmie Marielle Rodriguez delivers one of the most beautiful pieces of Adventure Time fanart to date.
SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft was successfully captured by the International Space Station this morning, making it the first privately-owned vessel in history to dock with the ISS.
At around 14:00 UTC -- 10:00 a.m. ET -- the Dragon was grabbed by the station's Canadian-built robot arm and pulled into the docking birth on the ISS's Harmony node.
In case you missed the live broadcast, NASA has posted video of the historic event.
SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft has passed within 2.4 kilometers of the International Space Station, en route to becoming the first commercial cargo craft to dock with the ISS.
The photo above shows the Dragon as viewed by ISS astronauts, who are preparing for the vessel's historic arrival Friday morning.
More photos are up in NASA's Expedition 31 Flickr gallery.
The Dragon will be the first commercial spacecraft to dock with the International Space Station, where it will deliver supplies to the ISS astronauts.
Also onboard the capsule are the remains of over 300 different people, including James Doohan (Star Trek's original Scotty) and Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper.
Customers paid a company called Celestis $3,000 to arrange space burials for their loved ones, and this is the second time Celestis and SpaceX have tried to deliver on that promise. The companies made a failed attempt to put remains in orbit back in 2008.
Believe it or not, this gorgeous sculpture of Skyrim menace Aldiun is actually a birthday cake made by Mom of the Century Vera (who blogs at Baking Obsession.)
When we asked our son to make a wish-list for his upcoming birthday, the only thing he wrote there was to have an Alduin cake for his birthday party. Under no circumstances could I decline his request.
The runes on the cake read "Happy Birthday, Tim."
This cake really gives Bethesda's official version (by Charm City Cakes) a run for its septims.
World Eater? More like World Eaten, amirite?
Rick Hamel's RC dragon, called Mythical Beast, is seven feet long with a nine-foot wingspan, and it both flies and breathes fire.
The Beast is powered by a Jetcat P80 Kerostart turbine, and its fiery breath is courtesy of a liquid propane tank and stun-gun circuit. Sounds totally safe!
Where's the Dovahkiin when you need him?
