ISS Crew Opens Dragon Hatch a Day Early

Apparently, it was just too much.

Displaying the bold and decisive space action usually reserved for one James T. Kirk (in either universe),  ISS crew commander Suni Williams and flight Engineer Aki Hoshide threw caution to the wind and opened Dragon’s hatch at 1:40 PM EDT Wednesday, hours after completing the berthing procedure and a full day ahead of schedule.

With everything appearing in good order, the Dragon capsule is once again an integral part of International Space Station, and the process of unloading supplies and experiments can begin.  One has to wonder, was it the ice cream?

And another thing: Aren’t Dippin Dots the ice-cream of the future?
