From Phys.org here is their story about the docking of the Space-X Dragon with the ISS. So the US is back in space, just not the same way we were before. Now we have a private company providing launch services to the Space Station.

The untold back story is as interesting as the achievement itself.

Its worth a read of SpaceX website on costs
