The crew members first opened the hatch between the space station and Dragon Endeavour at 1:02 p.m. EDT, allowing Hurley and Behnken to enter their new home in space as members of Expedition 63.

This is the first manned test flight of a private company to the International Space Station (ISS).

While millions of people across the world watched the live broadcast of SpaceX's historic launch to the International Space Station, one woman spotted a mysterious object that she said looked like a UFO. Then Rogozin wrote on Twitter that Russian Federation may refuse to deliver American astronauts to the ISS in response, and advised them to use a trampoline to get to the station. Since then, NASA astronauts have had to hitch rides into orbit aboard Russia's Soyuz spacecraft. "On shuttle, we felt the docking".

Crossing this milestone means that essentially the first half of the mission has been completed successfully. However, Behnken noted that both he and Hurley were expecting that.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine from mission control in Houston checked in on them after their long journey. "It was just an fantastic day".

"It is the culmination of an incredible amount of work by the SpaceX team, by Nasa and by a number of other partners", he said.

Musk, the founder of PayPal and the electric auto manufacturer Tesla, was emotional at a press conference following the launch, which was attended by Donald Trump and Mike Pence, the United States vice-president.
