  • SpaceX Photos From the Crew Dragon Demo Launch to Space Station Docking

According to a recent statement from Musk at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, "People have gone to space station on Soyuz", which is in reference to the very small amount of Russian civilians who have paid between $20-$40 million to travel to Russia's "Soyuz" spacecraft.

Saint-Jacques tweeted about the experience monitoring Crew Dragon's "first-ever approach and docking" to the space station, hailing it as "the dawn of a new era in human spaceflight!" As CNN famous, there was additionally a danger that it might harm the ISS.

The space station's three astronauts had front-row seats as the white 27-foot-long (8-meter-long) capsule neatly docked, a little early no less.

The Crew Dragon craft took off Saturday morning from the Launch Complex 39-A.

After stage separation, Falcon 9's first stage came down to land on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. That's a part of the uncrewed take a look at the run that issues SpaceX CEO Elon Musk essentially the most, the BBC wrote.

The two will be joined by NASA astronaut Christina Hammock Koch for the launch aboard the Russian Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft from the Baikonur spaceport in Kazakhstan, NASA said.

Launched on the company's Falcon 9 rocket, it was the first test mission of a commercially built and operated American spacecraft and rocket designed for humans. The round-trip to the International Space Station is created to provide data on the performance of the company's Falcon 9 rocket, Crew Dragon spacecraft, and other systems and operations that NASA will evaluate, as part of the process to certify SpaceX to carry astronauts to and from the space station. The test dummy was nicknamed Ripley after the main character in the "Alien" movies.

Crew Dragon docked with the ISS on March 3 at 6:02 a.m. EST, becoming the first American spacecraft to autonomously dock with the orbiting laboratory. Boeing is looking to launch its Starliner capsule without a crew as early as April and with a crew possibly in August. It used its computers and sensors to guide itself to the station. He marvels at how the Dragon has just 30 buttons and touch screens, compared with the space shuttle cockpit's 2,000 switches and circuit breakers. Musk jokingly said they better wait a week, until the Dragon returns, before responding.
