Quotes

Afterward, Wakata sent down his kudos to SpaceX and the ground teams as he remarked, "Congratulations to the entire ops team for the successful launch, rendezvous, and capture operation. The vehicle, the spacecraft was very solid and very stable. And the Canadarm2 was really solid, and it made it easier for us to capture."
"They were delivered in boxes only slightly bigger than a shoebox… you couldn't strap them into a seat or anything. We strapped them down in their boxes on the floor and took them on a couple of hours' flight from Saigon to Bangkok."
...ISS received Easter supplies Sunday morning via SpaceX company's cargo ship "Dragon" (whose company headquarters is in Hawthorne, California) which "spent two days chasing the International Space Station following its launch from Cape Canaveral. Astronauts used a robot arm to capture the capsule 260 miles above Egypt. More than 2 tons of food, spacewalking gear and experiments fill the Dragon, including mating fruit flies, a little veggie hothouse and legs for the resident robot. NASA also packed family care packages for the six spacemen." abclocal.go.com
"For so many years it was secret and we couldn't say anything about it" said Yates. "I actually thought we never would get recognized."
