Flagrant Nerd is everything geek. It's whatever nerdy, geeky, dork-a-rama subject, theme, pastime, issue, matter, interest, and/or event that I feel like blogging. I'll also blog now and then about any stuff I might be doing in the 'real world.' So grab a Mountain Dew and some Cheetos because we all have a little bit of an inner nerd that is struggling to get out. As it has been written, "Blessed are the geek, for they shall inherit the Earth."
So International Space Station captured SpaceX's Dragon Capsule with a robotic arm at about 10am EST this morning (beyond cool). I'm currently watching a live CNN feed from a camera aboard the ISS as the capsule is maneuvered by the arm toward a docking berth.
Once again, I'm getting that prickly feeling of witnessing a moment of history...the first successful commercial cargo haul to an orbiting space station.
