The spacecraft, named Resilience, docked at 11:01 p.m.

At 4:27 PM PDT on Sunday, the SpaceX Falcon 9 booster exploded at the Kennedy Space Center 39A Launch Complex, as its engines illuminate the Florida coast. They will be part of the station's crew until April, when their replacements arrive on another Dragon capsule. Rubins, Glover, Hopkins and Walker are all NASA astronauts.

"What an fantastic last couple of days ..."

It might seem like Baby Yoda has learned to use the force at a very young age and was able to levitate himself off the ground, but in reality, he's just tagging along for SpaceX's journey to the International Space Station.

"I look forward to enjoying the new era and going together for the future", said Hiroshi Sasaki, Vice President of JAXA.

Another U.S. astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts are aboard the space station from a previous mission. This is the first crew rotation mission of NASA's Commercial Crew Program and the first commercial crew flight to include an global partner.

The Crew-1 astronauts are expected to spend about six months aboard the ISS, where they will work on a variety of scientific experiments and conduct spacewalks to carry out updates and repairs on the exterior of the space station. Late last night, the spacecraft successfully docked to the ISS. "It was an awesome ride".

"The last 27 hours have gone really smooth actually", Mr Hopkins said after boarding the space station.

"We cannot wait to get you onboard", she added after both spacecraft were awakened together.

Falcon 9 booster lifts off from Kennedy Space Centrer in Florida to take Crew Dragon capsule into orbit.

This spacecraft is capable of staying in the space orbit for over 200 plus days and can provide almost 500 pounds of cargo, science experiment to the International Space Station.

When SpaceX's Falcon 9 took off on Sunday night, the spaceflight company did something that it is getting good at. During flight, SpaceX commands the spacecraft from its control center in Hawthorne, California, while NASA teams monitor space station operations from its space center in Houston. A Baby Yoda plush toy was sent into space along with four astronauts on SpaceX's second-ever crewed flight. While onboard the ISS, he will serve as the Flight Engineer.

The Dragon has completed 22 flights to and from the space station, according to SpaceX.
