Dragon docking with the International Space Station

Watching the Dragon capsule slowly approaching the International Space Station. The space station was launched in 1998. The technology on it is 21 years old, but the C2V2 system was updated in 2016, designed for arrivals like the one happening today. The level of detailed and long-term planning required to make all this happen is just amazing.
