SpaceX’s Dragon is rapidly approaching its historic meeting with the International Space Station. It’s due to begin its first docking procedure at 7:30am ET, and NASA is streaming footage from both the ground crew, the ISS and the private craft itself. Once within a safe range, the station will extend its robotic arm and draw the Dragon in to dock — with the hatch being opened tomorrow. We’ve embedded the video after the break so you can watch along at home, popcorn in hand.
