What's the hold up? Are the guys at SpaceX taking a smoke break? Captain Kirk could have banged three space broads and slapped a Klingon by now.

The Bestest: berthing delayed until they perform an attitude adjustment on the ISS

omega male: What did I miss?

I had a customer come in to " pick a beef with me " :/


They're 10 meters away and have permission to do it at night, with the lights off, under the sheets, missionary only.

Man, I'll bet the astronauts on the Space Station are hating the delay. Your stuck in a tin can for as long as they are and supply day has to be like Christmas to a child. They get up bright and early to open their presents and then have to wait. Every minute torture. Can see it out the window but can't have.

Haha. Stupid astronauts.

The Bestest: Grither: So what now? Do they move it or do astronauts go out and unpack it manually?

the next step is for the arm to bring it in and dock.
after that they will run tests on the air quality inside Dragon
after that they open the hatch and loot the Dragon

As always, it's important to stab a Dragon in its weak spot before attempting to steal its hoard.

Shadow Blasko: "Catching the Dragon In The Dark" sounds like I just pissed off the DM


"I attempt to grapple the dragon in the dark."
"Roll for intelligence check."
"What?"
"Just roll.."
"18."
"You realize what a stupid idea that was and run away."

btw/fyi, the person Houston was talking to just then is Don Pettit of "knittin' needle" fame here on Fark.
He'll be the one operating the Canadarm2.

The Bestest: SlothB77: like if you were riding the dragon dirty?

4.8 miles per second


You can chase the dragon, but you'll never catch it.

SlothB77: how fast are these things moving? on one hand, they appear to be motionless (relative to each other), but i know they are orbiting at a very fast rate (relative to the earth). What is the perceived speed, like if you were riding the dragon dirty?


Well, They were over western canada 45 minutes ago. Now over South Africa

blazemongr: This never took nearly so long on "Babylon 5". I'm starting to lose my faith in science fiction as an accurate predictor of the future.


Hey, a week ago the amount of time it would take for a commercial spacecraft to dock with the ISS was infinity.

So if you extrapolate, we'll be dividing by zero in no-time.

Grither: Isn't there a camera on the Dragon so they can show us the ISS from its point of view?


And stare into the infinity behind it? Great, let's just create another one of these douches.
