Been watching this all day. Woo Hoo! Saturday morning NASA TV will have coverage of the hatch opening.
I am now "officially" upgrading this from a Big Deal to a Huge Deal. The future is upon us, folks.

It is an interesting moment, and a great cause to celebrate. Now NASA will concentrate on deeper space. Forget about them being shut down.

Doubt it.
NASA will more likely become the regulating entity. Government functions never go away - even if they are not needed anymore.

Technically, and by specifications, Dragon is already man-rated. It is designed to transport both ways.
Of _course_ they have to prove that, but it's built into the design.
