After two days of complex maneuvering, the capsule's propulsion systems and sensors were validated and the spacecraft slowly inched toward the orbiting station until it was close enough to be snared by a robotic arm.

The test flight culminates years of planning to demonstrate Space Exploration's ability to reliably launch cargo missions to supply the orbiting laboratory, a venture supported by a group of 16 nations.

The brainchild of 40-year-old Elon Musk—former Internet whiz kid and co-founder of PayPal Inc.—SpaceX, as it's known, is under a $1.6 billion contract with NASA to begin shuttling cargo to the space station.
