Ugh.  I watched the launch, and it was AWESOME!  I missed the docking.  Shoot.

Same here.  By the time I jumped on the stream, they were just unloading and I couldn't get highlights yet.

I caught both the launch and docking. I was surprised how easy it seemed and then how complex the whole process just to open the hatch and come on board.
Ride safe!

I know! It seemed almost faster to launch and get them in orbit than it did to open the doors.

Ya everything seemed quick except opening the door.I don't clame to know a lot about what is involved but I bet there are a lot of things that can go wrong when connecting two pressurized compartments in a vacuum.
