    "Looks like we've got a Dragon by the tail"

    "Looks like we've got a Dragon by the tail" said Don Pettit shortly after capturing the SpaceX Dragon with the Space Station's robotic arm. There was a minor glitch earlier this morning in which the Dragon's LIDAR caught some spurious reflections from the wrong part of the International Space Station. Everything went well after remotely commanding the LIDAR to narrow it's field of view.
