SpaceX has been sending its unmanned Dragon spacecraft on resupply missions to the International Space Station since 2012, and now a version decked out for human rides is edging closer to joining in the fun. The company has lifted its Crew Dragon capsule into the air above the launchpad in Florida, with its first ever unmanned orbital test flight said to be around a month away.
Crew Dragon is taken from the same blueprint as SpaceX's Dragon capsule, but with a cabin modified for more comfortable human travel. That means carbon fiber seating dressed in Alcantara cloth, four windows for panoramic views of space and climate control.
