'Dragon by the Tail!': Video of SpaceX capsule docking with ISS

History has been made today. A commercial company has successfully docked a craft of their own making with the International Space Station. A great beginning. Who knows where it will go? Russia Today does a nice little summary of many hours' work.

Congrats to SpaceX and NASA!

UPDATE: May 26, 2012: the Dragon capsule was successfully opened by the time I checked NASA TV at 6:15 am and was reported to have a very nice new car smell. After a 20 minute delay to allow the air between the station and Dragon to mix, the crew will enter Dragon and begin checking out the ship and cargo.
