What is NASA’s Commercial Crew Program? Why is this a new era of spaceflight? What is SpaceX crew demo-1 launch?
In this video, we discuss NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. This project focuses on helping private companies like SpaceX and Boeing help develop their new crew capsules. For Boeing, this is the CST-100 Starliner, and for SpaceX this is their Crew Dragon capsule.
On March 2nd, SpaceX Crew Dragon test flight took place, which marked the first of the test flights for these two companies. If everything goes according to plan, later this year (2019) these companies will be sending astronauts to the International Space Station. Many consider this launch marking a new era of spaceflight, because of the private industry working on crewed flight.
