Watch the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule dock with International Space Station

Watch it below.

On Saturday, SpaceX launched its first crew into space for NASA on the company's Crew Dragon spacecraft.

The two astronauts aboard, Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, are making their way up to the International Space Station from Florida's Kennedy Space Centre.

SpaceX’s Crew Dragon has an automatic docking system which uses sensors and cameras to allow the craft approach the ISS and attach to the docking point.

The system was tested last year when an unmanned craft was sent to the ISS.

Astronauts Hurley and Behnken won't need to intervene in the docking unless there is a problem although they will do some testing prior to the process starting to ensure they're able to make changes if the situation arises.

The docking is due to take place around 3.29pm Irish time with NASA providing footage of the docking that can be watched at the link below.

The reusable SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket landed successfully on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean on Saturday and the very cool footage of that can be watched here.
