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.

Saturday morning's historic SpaceX launch, which would have been the first-ever mission to send a commercial spacecraft to the International Space Station, was aborted due to technical problems. Now the reason for the failure to launch has come out: it was a faulty engine valve.
According to SpaceX's official Twitter account, "Inspections found a faulty check valve on engine #5."
The valve was scheduled to be repaired on Saturday night, and a new launch time has been set for early Tuesday morning, at 3:44 a.m.
