SpaceX Dragon nears ISS for resupply docking today

SpaceX's Dragon capsule is less than 250 meters from the International Space Station, as the first private resupply mission prepares to dock in just a few hours time. A view from the capsule's camera, shared by NASA, shows the ISS, which will use a robotic arm to snatch Dragon from orbit and guide it in to dock at 7:22am EDT. The Expedition 33 team will use LIDAR and thermal imagers to track Dragon's approach.

SpaceX reporting tiny explosion in Dragon ISS launch [UPDATED with statement]

SpaceX reporting tiny explosion in Dragon ISS launch [UPDATED with statement]

This morning we're hearing official word from SpaceX that their Dragon capsule launch to the International Space Station didn't go as perfect as it seemed in the live feed. What you're about to see is a bit of an explosion, some debris flying from the craft, and a burst of fire. Of course as the fire is surrounded by lots of fire from the rockets surrounding it, it'll be just a bit difficult to detect - good thing the video is in slow motion and you'll see it all in all of its glorious detail.

Steve Jobs interview from 1983 uncovered with spot-on predictions for the future

Steve Jobs interview from 1983 uncovered with spot-on predictions for the future

From a casette tape recovered this week by Marcel Brown of Steve Jobs speaking at the 1983 International Design Conference in Aspen comes an interview that reveals several baffling predictions from the Apple co-founder. It was John Celuch of Inland Design who possessed this tape up until just recently, each of the attendees of the speech receiving said speech (and Q and A) on the tape you see here - rather lovely, isn't it? This tape has the number 20 on it, this leading us to believe that there may have been a limited amount of these tapes created - but it's moot now as the internet spreads the love in a wide way.

SpaceX Dragon parks 30m off Space Station as docking nears

SpaceX Dragon parks 30m off Space Station as docking nears

SpaceX's Dragon capsule has reached the hold point near the International Space Station, just 30m from the orbiting platform, and waiting for the optimum time for the station to grapple it in. It's taken several hours of testing and positioning to get Dragon in so close, with NASA and the SpaceX ground team repeatedly running through the "retreat" procedure which will halt the craft and back it away from the ISS should an issue arise.

If you have a bunch of your old tech gear sitting around that you really don't want, and you are trying to think of something cool to do with it a geek named Rodrigo Alonso has a heck of an idea.
