And if Yuri were alive, he'd take the time to visit Brazhnev's grave and leave a steaming turd on top.

Obligatory comment from me about it really just being low Earth orbit. Space begins beyond the exosphere.

But good job flying real high.

I have an unusual impatience when it comes to video tutorials but much appreciated offer.  I found a forum post here that gave some pretty good insight into it:
http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/showthread.php/35122-A-Pictoral-G u ide-to-Docking

That was a while back and having just completed my first docking a few minutes ago (sweet!) I can say the biggest hinderance was not paying attention to the need for those RCS thrusters on *both* sides of a ship's center of gravity.  I'd originally stuck a bunch at the top of both ships but after putting them in a ring there and another three at the back-end I was able to get the stability needed!

Needs to be accusative.

*breaks into traditional Commie song*

Выходила, песню заводила

Про степного, сизого орла,

Про того, которого yбила,

Про того, чьи яйца разбила.

If you're flying beyond where atmosphere can help you steer or stay aloft, you may be flying a spacecraft.

For fans of the ISS, this is a nice little service: http://spotthestation.nasa.gov/

Works great. I've been getting emails since last week regarding the ISS flying in my area. Took my son outside last night so we could see it. Had a great view as it flew overhead. Just a fast moving star, but it's still pretty neat.
