Congratulations to SpaceX, who have connected their Dragon to the ISS.

That isn’t what I find so strange, though it is potentially the start of a big exciting Newe Worlde.
What was so strange, so bizarre, was the mixture of the real-time video from the ISS with the Dragon capsule on the end of the robot arm with the world turning underneath it oh so beautiful and delicate, and all flung carelessly out onto the web for anyone who wanted to watch; with the stupid irritating Pringles advert I was forced to sit though for ten seconds before watching the video.
