Some folks have gathered around MCC in Hawthorne. Not nearly as many as last time though.

Hmmm, can't find any images of employees watching C2+ arrival at ISS, maybe I was confusing that with a launch?  ::)

I guess now we only have to see if Dragon will hold good attitude long enough for capture once thrusters are inhibited.
