Glendale-based home services software developer ServiceTitan Inc. tapped Guy Longworth, former marketing officer for accounting software developer Intuit, to be its first Chief Marketing Officer.

SpaceX’s test Crew Dragon vehicle launched and docked safely March 3 (without crew members) at the International Space Station, another step towards a crewed launch to the ISS that is slated to take place “later this year or in early 2020,” ArsTechnica reports. The last time NASA used the docking port on the Space Station to receive crew members was in August 2011, during the final space shuttle mission of the Atlantis craft.
