You Can Watch Live-Stream Of The SpaceX Rocket Landing At The ISS

If you're now hooked on the drama, suspense and beauty of live space missions, then good news - you can watch the SpaceX crew dock at the International Space Station (ISS) in a few hours, via the live stream below:

Elon Musk's rocket made history yesterday (Saturday), marking the first time astronauts have been launched into orbit from US soil since the Space Shuttle was retired.

People from all over the world watched on as NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken were propelled skyward in the commercial spacecraft, sporting hi-tech SpaceX space suits. But having successfully launched, Doug and Bob still have plenty of work to do.

They are due to dock at the ISS at around 10:29am ET (3.30pm in the UK). The Crew Dragon craft is capable of docking automatically, but the plan is for Doug and Bob to practice some manual flying when they get within a couple of hundred metres from the ISS, as this is a test flight and NASA wants to ensure that astronauts can successfully dock if there's ever a computer malfunction.


The automatic system will then complete docking once they're done and the craft's hatch will open around two hours after that, at which point Doug and Bob will be able to join NASA colleague Chris Cassidy and Russian cosmonauts, Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner, who have been in orbit since April.

The docking live-stream could make for tough viewing for flat Earthers though, you know, what with the clearly not flat Earth visible in the distance.

Social media has been awash with people claiming the launch represented the final nail in the already well and truly nailed coffin of the classic conspiracy theory.

Of course, there has been an abundance of evidence proving the Earth is spherical before now; indeed, the rocket would never have made it into orbit in the first place without an immeasurable amount of calculations predicated upon knowledge of the Earth's roundness.

However, none of this has quite managed to persuade the perplexingly stubborn flat Earther community thus far.

Sorry guys, but since when has compelling evidence ever persuaded a flat Earther? ... No doubt the NASA live-stream of the docking was actually prerecorded in a Hollywood studio.
