SpaceX’s Dragon became the first commercial spacecraft to dock at the International Space Station.
The spacecraft was named after the song "Puff, the Magic Dragon" as a response to those who said the project was impossible. In addition to succeeding, Dragon also made a cargo delivery to the ISS on its voyage.
The goal was to make a human chain holding hands from California to New York. Although many areas weren't populated enough to make the line unbroken, about 5 to 6.5 million people held hands for 15 minutes. The event raised $15 million for charities.
