The private spaceflight company Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, has added a new spacecraft to its fleet -- the Dragon space capsule -- that promises to be the first commercial spacecraft ever to make a round trip to low-Earth orbit.

Designed to launch on SpaceX's Falcon 9 rockets, the Dragon space capsule are expected to initially make unmanned cargo delivery flights to the International Space Station. But they could eventually be modified to serve as private space taxis for orbit-bound astronauts. Here's an inside look at the Dragon spacecraft:

Good for them. I think it is great another avenue for Space travel and exploration has emerged. I just wish they didn't have to rely on NASA, that they could be more independent. But hey, whatever, they are doing it now.

It will be interesting to see how much any private company keeps hush about if/when they do find evidence of UFO/Alien life or past dwellings on the moon or mars. That would just blow the lid off any cover up that might currently exist.

Well, for the good of mankind and it's advancement for the better of human existance, Good luck and God bless.

I did not really do any research on this, but is there any history for 'SpaceX' the company?
For all we know they could probably be just another front to the most nefarious space organization in our world today.

No wonder even if they are an independent organization, NASA will ensure they are heavily dependent on them.

They are pretty close to where I live, you can actually hear when they test the rocket engines.

I find it interesting that someone would make a comment about a private launch vehicle and ET contact / witnessing. Makes one wonder if we are closer to finding out if we are alone or not in the Universe. As days go by, its going to be harder and harder to keep any type of information about ET secret.

More and more countries are doing the Space Program thing.

Private individuals and companies doing the space program thing..

As far as the rocket launch and capsule it looks good. I see we are taking a few steps backwards in terms of design and what not, but hey, if it works why not use it.

It is interesting that you say this. I have heard that before-that that design shape is not advanced etc.

I would think that: If it works don't fix it would apply here. Seems like a simple and effective shape and has proven history (meaning that shape and the US/NASA craft.

sorry, I have no idea how to embed video, can someone do it for me?

check this out guys, OP's picture reminds me of ancient sumerian "spacecraft" called "Ashen" or something like that. I probably typed it bad. Anyways, jump to 2:37 of the video to see it. I saw it in different documentary as well, where it was also described as ancient spacecraft.
Also look at the tablet on 2:33, there are is a winged circle object right in the middle between 2 people.
I know what you're thinking. Yes, I think the same... isn't that planet Nibiru?
