MODS if this is the wrong forum please move as needed and thanks in advance.
So here we go guys, SpaceX is about to launch the first crew dragon capsule test flight to the ISS.
The capsule will contain gear and "Ripley" (SpaceX space suit fitted with many sensors to gather data) that will with any luck successfully dock
with the ISS.
If all goes well the next test will be a launch escape test. Hopefully we get to that point with little to no hiccups before.
This will save NASA around $19,000,000 a seat per launch using SpaceX. Now keep in mind that cost is subject to change but for now that is the
presumed cost that can be saved!
If you are interested in watching this launch at 2:49 A.M. ET (about 45 min from now) you can watch it live here at
Also just to add March is hopefully the month we get to see another Falcon Heavy launch!
Exciting times if ya ask me
