NASA has just approved SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft for an April 30th launch. This capsule will be attached to the company’s Falcon 9 rockets and “launch from Cape Canaveral just after noon ET — from there it’ll perform a flyby of the station to check its sensors and flight systems before its inaugural docking with the ISS.” Video after the break showing just how the ISS mission will work.

Wanna watch the magic happen? Live video of the launch starts at 11AM on NASA TV, and night owls can watch the docking itself occur May 3rd at 2AM.
