Approaching... approaching...

They're currently 80ft away and the commentator has just said they'll be docking in about 17 minutes. The tension is unbearable!

We don' need no steenkin'...

...docking computers!

Back in the day, I didn't waste hard earned money on docking computers.

I could dock my Cobra MkIII at Lave station much faster than this Real Life(tm) stuff. And that bloody station was rotating too!

Ok, ok, so I scraped a bit of paint off :-)

That was fascinating to watch. Talk about precision flying!

"Elevenses"? Damn, that was about 0300ish here on the East Coast

Still... it's all Americans, Russians and Italians aboard; I don't think they do "elevenses"
