That we now have a second way to the International Space Station is good, that there will soon be a third with the Boeing capsule is great but in order to preserve alternate paths to space we should also consider continuing to use the Russians as a launch option as well.

The worst thing we could do is limit our access as it's been limited since the Space Shuttle retired leaving only one path to the ISS.

"practice... sleeping" LOL! this astronaut malarkey is tough!

I guess it does need testing but didn't they sleep during the trip to the station?

My last job before retiring was integrating the Crew Dragon (and Starliner) into the ISS Command & Data Handling (C&DH) system. It's great to see this in action.

Well the Russians will keep launching their crews to the ISS on thier rockets so they aren’t going away. 🙂
