SpaceX has completed the first part of its historic crewed flight to the International Space Station (ISS) Sunday morning, when its Crew Dragon spacecraft successfully docked with the orbiting laboratory.

5月31日上午,美国太空探索技术公司完成了载人前往国际空间站的历史性任务的第一步,载人"龙"飞船与国际空间站成功对接。

In a first for a commercial spacecraft, Crew Dragon docked with the ISS at 10:16 am Eastern Time Sunday, a few minutes earlier than planned, carrying astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley.

美国东部时间5月31日上午10时16分,美国首个商业载人太空船"龙"飞船与国际空间站对接,比原计划提前了几分钟,飞船内搭载着宇航员鲍勃·本肯和道格·赫利。

The two astronauts entered the ISS at 1:22 pm Eastern Time, after the hatch opened.

东部时间下午1时22分,舱门打开后,两名宇航员进入国际空间站。

The launch marks the first time since 2011 that American astronauts have launched from an American rocket on American soil to the ISS. It also marks the first time in history where NASA astronauts were launched into orbit by a commercially built spacecraft operated by an American crew.

这是自2011年以来美国宇航员首次搭乘从本土发射的美国火箭进入国际空间站,也是美国宇航局的宇航员有史以来第一次乘坐商业公司建造运营的美国载人航天器进入太空。
