It's the first time that a privately built and owned spacecraft has delivered a crew to the orbiting lab.

The capsule docked automatically, 19 hours after liftoff.

SpaceX launched the Dragon from Kennedy Space Center on Saturday afternoon, the first astronaut launch from the U.S. to orbit in nearly a decade.
