First private spacecraft was launched to ISS.
22:04
On May 22, 2012 at 07:44 UTC the Dragon COTS 2 DEMO unmanned spacecraft was launched from launch pad 40 at Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA. The first private spacecraft was orbited by the "Falcon-9” rocket-carrier.
If all goes according to plan, the Dragon will become the first commercial space vehicle to reach the International Space station, a 450-ton orbiting complex staffed by six crew members from Russia, the United States and the Netherlands.
The Dragon is to dock with the ISS on May 25 at 12:06 UTC.
