Congrats to SpaceX for Successful Dragon ISS Meet-up.

This post is long overdue, but I feel that I must at least say something. On May 31st, the first commercial flight to ISS concluded with a successful splash landing into the Pacific Ocean off of Baja California. The capsule was successfully recovered. This event topped off a flawless first flight to ISS. More images from the flight are available at the SpaceX website, particularly in the section of the website devoted to the Dragon Spacecraft. According to the SpaceX launch manifest, Dragon will run resupply missions to ISS 11 more times between now and the end of 2015. One side comment. Is it just me, or does the Dragon look just like a giant toasted marshmallow in the recovery pictures?
