Earlier this week, the rocket carrying SpaceX's dragon capsule launched into space and headed toward the International Space Station carrying supplies like food, computer equipment and tools for experiments that are to be handed off to astronauts.
If the unmanned shuttle successfully links up with the space station this morning, it will be the first time a private spacecraft has accomplished such a feat.
Astronaut Dan Tani calls into Early Start this morning to explain the mission and to discuss the significance of the historic day.
