Congratulations to the authors for managing to get a live, commercial space flight to the ISS as you're running a story about hijacking it!

Or maybe we've discovered the REAL reason why we had that little jump to the Vesta storyline. ;)

On a side note, YAY, Private spaceflight!

The person who made the links in the paragraph below the video was a tad careless, or sneaky. The penultimate link in the paragraph text (on "Dragon") is a tumblr photo of a kitten, perhaps named "Dragon", but not very related to this event.

Indeed... I'm guessing that's a joke...

A search-fu on laser space propulsion out of a gravity well lead me to actual Space Pirates too.
