Two American astronauts have successfully brought this SpaceX mission to a close. A key mission objective was to connect a docking adapter ring onto the ISS. Yesterdays installation was completed in just a few hours, paving the way for future manned SpaceX Dragon capsules. The current schedule should see the first manned Dragon flight later next year, ahead of Boeing's Starliner scheduled for early 2018. This launch event in 2017, perhaps occurring close to the first Model ≡ deliveries, could be a nice PR double play for SpaceX / Tesla. The following link has more detail, also mentions that NASA will probably be supplying most if not all of the initial test pilots.
