    Bravo SpaceX. It seems to me that a preliminary step to utilizing Dragon for transport to the ISS would be to use it in a life boat capacity so that we can accommodate more than three residents at the ISS during normal crew rotations. I realize the issues are more complicated than adding six seats to the Dragon capsule, but the cost incremental has to be relatively small compared to the gain of more fully utilizing a resource we already sunk $100 billion into building.

    Next Falcon9 launch set informally for May 27th looks like it won’t make that date. (They sound like a helium pressurization bottle burst in the stage). Waiting for more details still.
