It’s not every day that a brand new spacecraft arrives at the International Space Station. So when a Boeing Starliner space capsule made its historic first docking at the orbiting lab this weekend, you can bet the astronauts were watching.

The first unmanned Boeing Starliner spaceship to visit the station moored Friday evening (May 20) and new crew photos from the orbiting lab captured the moment in spectacular detail. Starliner’s mission, called Orbital Flight Test 2is a critical test flight to see if the commercial space taxi is ready to transport astronauts to the station for NASA.
