SpaceX's new crew capsule arrived at the International Space Station Sunday, acing its second milestone in just over a day.The crew Dragon is the first American-made, designed-for-crew spacecraft to pull up to the station in eight years. The three station astronauts had front-row seats as the sleek, white capsule neatly docked, a little early no less. If the six-day demo goes well, SpaceX could launch two astronauts this summer under NASA's commercial crew program.While SpaceX has sent plenty of cargo Dragons to the space station, crew Dragon is a different beast. Boeing is looking to launch its Starliner capsule without a crew by April and with a crew possibly in August.
