UNIT8: Space & Flight


This presents an opportunity for humans to return to deep space for the first time in 45 years, and they will travel faster and further into the Solar System than any before them,” the company said in a news statement.

The space tourists will ride in the Crew Dragon, a modified version of the company’s Dragon cargo capsule that’s used to take supplies to and from the International Space Station. SpaceX has been updating the Dragon to carry people as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, an initiative to launch NASA astronauts to the International Space Station on American-made vehicles again. The Crew Dragon will send astronauts to the ISS for NASA before the Moon mission.
