That was awesome!

And of course, this continues as update only with docked ops and through to EOM!

Many thanks to all for the excellent play by play. Special thanks to centaurinasa - who is like some update machine (as seen with EVA coverage!)

SpaceX Demo-1 Dragon Spacecraft - Welcoming Ceremony at the International Space Station
http://www.space-multimedia.nl.eu.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=6662

Great words by astronaut Anne McClain:

"Our sincere gratulations to all Earthlings who have enabled the opening of this next chapter in space exploration. To the International Space Station teams, past and present, who stand guard 24 hours a day at control centers from Moskow to Japan to Houston. Congratulations to the teams at SpaceX and Boeing, who have been working diligently to define what this new era of commercial spaceflight will look like. And congratulations to all nations, private space firms and individuals, who work up every day, driven by the magic of exploration. This day belongs to all of us.

Spaceflight gives us a chance to reflect on the context of our existence. We are reminded that we are human, before any of our differences, before all of the lines that are drawn by dividers. And we are reminded that we are at our best when we are part of something bigger than ourselves. In 1957, just over 60 years ago, history changed when Russia launched Sputnik, the world’s first artificial satellite. People across the globe gathered in backyards and looked up at the night sky, hoping to catch a glimpse. A few years later, people of all nationalities grabbed hands, hoping and praying for Yuri Gagarin’s successful launch, as he became the first human in space. And in 1969 every TV across the globe was tuned in as Buzz, Michael and Neil embarked on the first human journey to the moon.

Today, human advancement of exploration continues, as the first new space vehicle designed for humans in over 40 years arrived at our front door, welcomed by our crew of one Russian, one Canadian and one American, who have been living together as familiy for three months onboard the International Space Station. These events remind us that we are more alike than different; that we can be united by a cause that is not based on fear, threat or common enemy, but rather on a bold endeavour, an insatiable curiosity to go beyond what is known, and to do what has never been done. We humans were built for exploration, and we are built to do it together."

Houston just asked David for an estimate of the temp on Dragon to confirm the readings they have on console I assume. They asked if the temp felt like it was around 82-ish, David confirmed that it felt warmer in Dragon than in Node 2. (I was listening to the feed on https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/iss_ustream.html which has audio)

Earth will learn a lot during his busy week on @Space_Station - today he kept me company while we checked our suit sizing to account for space growth (I am 2 inches taller than when I launched!), then we did some translation adaptation.
LEO is the ocean, not an island (let alone a continent). We create cruise liners to ride the oceans, not artificial islands in the middle of them. We need a physical place, which has physical resources, to make our future out there.

Earth’s second day on @Space_Station started early, but he was happy to learn that even in space, the day starts off with coffee. Then it was emergency mask donning practice with @Astro_DavidS - if there’s an (unlikely) ammonia leak, we have just seconds to protect ourselves.

I would say that the $20 that SpaceX spent on that toy is one of the best values in PR investment in recent history!
