Private Company SpaceX Shows Off Version 2 Of The Dragon.

SpaceX has shown off its latest version of their Dragon spacecraft.

Dragon capsule

The new craft is designed to carry a crew and land vertically, “like a helicopter”.

Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX is competing with several other companies for NASA contracts to carry people and cargo to and from space.

Dragon interior

The spacious interior of the capsule is vastly different than the cramped quarters that exist in most current spacecraft.

It seems almost roomy and more relaxing than economy class on any airline.

Just think how this will play into my plans of turning the ISS into the first space hotel!  I’ll be the Donald of space! (Only without that hair thingy.)
