The first of two docks for SpaceX and Boeing are about to be installed on the International Space Station.
The docks will essentially return America's ability to launch astronauts from U.S. soil to the space station. Currently, American astronauts have to hitch a ride with their Russian counterparts.
It's a critical step in NASA's Commercial Crew Program — which relies on private companies to ferry astronauts between Earth and the ISS.
