SpaceX’s Demo-2 is just days away from launching and we are on the verge of a historic event in human space flight because for the first time ever SpaceX, a privately owned company, will ferry two NASA astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS). The two astronauts will be aboard the Crew Dragon, a state of the art, completely autonomous vehicle that will launch on one of the reusable Falcon 9 rockets. Demo-2 is a huge mission, it is the final demonstration flight for SpaceX, and the result could make or break if the new era of human spaceflight can be brought back to the United States. Find out more about the Demo-2 launch in this Countdown to Launch. #spacex #crewdragon #rocket #space #seeker #science #CountdownToLaunch The Race to Get SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Off the Ground | Countdown to Launch
