Just read the instructions

This evening I saw a tweet with a link to Nasa TV.  
Twenty minutes later we watched this rocket take off, live on Nasa TV.  
Twenty minutes later we watched Dragon fly over our house. For real.
Half an hour later we saw the International Space Station fly over.

Dragon is delivering research equipment and a coffee machine to ISS.
How did they get this far without coffee? 

Below is the barge that Falcon, the rocket, was due to land on - so it could be re-used.  
It hit the barge, named JustReadTheInstructions, but at such velocity it bounced off.

Thank you SpaceX
