SpaceX Crew Dragon on the Launchpad

SpaceX’s first Crew Dragon, which will carry astronauts to and from the International Space Station (ISS) is on the launchpad with the new astronaut walkway ahead of the first major test flight.

The spacecraft is designed to carry up to seven astronauts to and from the low Earth orbit (LEO). It will launch on the company’s reliable Falcon 9 rocket, like the uncrewed Dragon cargo ship. It will use parachutes to splash down in the ocean, also like the uncrewed Dragon.
