If you do not have trust in your own capabilities, experience and expertise, why should somebody else trust in you? It all starts with us ...

Another step of the Mission accomplished. Docking Dragon with the ISS and the 2 test pilots joining the ISS crew on board, as you can see on the picture. Well done and great to see technology at work.

After beating the weekly reader record last week, we could beat the 5 weeks average of weekly readers this week. The new record is 3.994 - great work done and one of my personal Missions accomplished 😉.

The coming week is another 4 day working week, as we do have a bank holiday in Germany tomorrow, Whit Monday. Yesterday I did get a present from the Vodafone Germany CEO Hannes Ametsreiterhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/hannes-ametsreiter/. A bar of chocolate and a personal thank you note to all employees and their commitment and attitude during the Corona crisis, lockdown and homeoffice period. Great sign and very much appreciated.

Well done LAUNCH AMERICA, great start and congratulations to all involved parties. 30-May-20, a day to remember. Great teamwork 👍. Roughly 19 hours to go to the ISS and the docking procedure. If you are interested in a simulation to do it manually, see https://iss-sim.spacex.com/. Not that easy, will take some practice to be successful in the end 😉. Luckily it is all automated.

19 hours is not the time to bridge the distance to the ISS, but to catch up to it as it circles the globe every 90 minutes at a speed of about 17,500 mph (28,000 km/h),  https://www.space.com/16748-international-space-station.html and  https://www.nasa.gov/feature/facts-and-figures

Have a successful Demo-2 Mission guys. https://www.nasa.gov/content/commercial-crew-resources

Relief on Corona lockdown measures in Europe, hopefully the infection numbers are not increasing too much.
