Aboard the station Commander Chris Cassidy and Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and
Ivan Vagner have been making preparations for arrival for the last several hours. As of this writing, the astronauts are awaiting the hatch pressurization sequence to open the hatches between Endeavor and the ISS. This is the first time in history that a commercially produced vehicle has delivered humans to the ISS. SpaceX maintained control of the vehicle for operations until docking. The entire process is designed to be completed autonomously, with no astronaut input, but with that capability if something were to go wrong.
