By now, you may have heard about a certain spacecraft being launched into space. Yes, the SpaceX Dragon crew took flight on May 30 to resupply the International Space Station and to prove some points. The mission was a complete success and has promised a very fruitful future for outer space endeavors. The spacecraft reached the ISS and fulfilled its mission several hours after the launch.
SpaceX was founded by Elon Musk, who is a technological genius of recent times. The things he has achieved in his 48 years of age is admirable. It is a privately-owned company, and it is the first time that a privately owned company has launched a mission in the space. This makes it a remarkable mission on its own, along with another fact that the rockets used in this mission are entirely reusable, which dramatically reduces the costs of these missions.
The achievements of this mission have promised cheaper space missions for the government or maybe private individuals in the future. The reusable capsules landed successfully in the Pacific Ocean, ready for the taking. The crew included two NASA astronauts, Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley.
This mission is the definite highlight of the otherwise terrible year of 2020. Take a look at the significant space ventures since the beginning of time in the below-mentioned chart.
