0

Today in 1999, the Space Shuttle Discovery became the first shuttle to dock with the International Space Station. Mission STS-96 was a resupply mission launched from Kennedy Space Center on May 27. The mission lasted just under 10 days. In addition to the space station part resupply, a copy of Blizzard Entertainment’s best-selling real time strategy game StarCraft was also included as part of the payload.
