I got a kick out of this...

Time Magazine - "SpaceX delivered two astronauts to the International Space Station for NASA on Sunday, following up a historic liftoff with an equally smooth docking in yet another first for Elon Musk’s company"

Now I know that the computers can do a better job of docking than a pilot, and I know that the crew was ultimately in control of the Dragon capsule. But, this is all I could think of with that choice of words!

What are they, a pizza? Seriously, I get it. SpaceX is responsible for getting them there. And kudos to Elon Musk and the whole SpaceX team for a job well done! It is a truly great moment, the dawn of real commercial launch systems to put humans into space!

But, the author couldn't have said "the astronauts arrived at" or "the two astronauts docked at"? He, he, he :) That description just made me collapse on the floor laughing!
