INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION (KYMA, KECY) - The world watched as the SpaceX and NASA crew made history Saturday afternoon, successfully launching from US soil for the first time since 2011.

After 19 hours of space travel, video shows as the SpaceX crew successfully docks at the International Space Station, where the two-man crew is expected to stay for at least six weeks.

It's the first time a privately built and owned spacecraft has delivered a crew to the orbiting lab.

It's not clear how long astronauts Bob Henken and Doug Hurley will stay at the station.

SpaceX is owned by billionaire Elon Musk, who says the capsule's return will be more dangerous in some ways than its launch.

In interviews, Musk says he hopes this mission will prove to be the first step towards a civilization on Mars.
