CAPE CANAVERAL- SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule arrived Sunday morning to the International Space Station, docking shortly after 9 a.m.

Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley are expected to exit the space craft, successfully completing the first leg of SpaceX's mission. The Astronauts are expected to stay on board the space station anywhere between one and three months.
