(AP) — SpaceX’s newly launched capsule with four astronauts has arrived at the International Space Station. The Dragon capsule pulled up and docked late Monday night, following a 27-hour, completely automated flight from Florida. This is the second astronaut mission for SpaceX. But it’s the first time Elon Musk’s company delivered a crew for a full six-month stay. The three Americans and one Japanese astronaut will remain at the orbiting lab until their replacements arrive next spring on another Dragon. They gave a tour of their capsule Monday, and first-time space flyer Victor Glover was presented his gold astronaut pin.
