SpaceX launches first Crew Dragon capsule mission in preparation for astronaut flights

Tech News

SpaceX caught itself a “W” early this morning with a successful launch of the Falcon 9 rocket with Crew Dragon capsule. Crew Dragon represents SpaceX’s first spacecraft meant to transfer humans to and from the International Space Station. This flight is the final test check for the spacecraft, and will include launch, docking with the ISS, and reentry into the Earth’s atmosphere for recovery.

Thus far, SpaceX has completed a successful launch of the Crew Dragon, complete with a test dummy and a very high-tech zero-g indicator.

Tomorrow morning, the craft will attempt to dock with the International Space Station, and after that, it will attempt re-entry.

NASA gave SpaceX approval for the launch earlier this week.
