  • Elon Musk Says SpaceX’s First Test Flight Will Be

The first one to begin the tests is SpaceX, which has already placed their Crew Dragon capsule on top of the rocket on the Launchpad.

SpaceX's first Crew Dragon and its Falcon 9 rocket stand atop Launch Pad 39A of NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canveral, Florida ahead of an uncrewed test flight scheduled for January 2019.

It is time for a new era of space exploration where astronauts once again launch into space from American soil. That timeline could potentially place the Crew Dragon demonstration flight in early February, though no official schedule change has been announced.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the company's first Crew Dragon spacecraft rolls out of its hangar at Launch Pad 39A of NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida on January 3, 2018. NASA wants access to its own crew-capable vehicles, and it's asked both Boeing and SpaceX to make that a reality.

Under the Commercial Crew Program, NASA and industry partners prepare for the next generation of American spacecraft that will launch astronauts to the International Space Station from here, the Space Coast of Florida. The flight is a test run for the spaceship meant to bring people to Mars for colonization.

Dragon-2 is an improved version of reusable private spaceship Dragon company SpaceX. NASA will be able to send astronauts to the International Space Station.

We could be only weeks away from the first major test of a private spaceship created to take American astronauts back to space on an American rocket from American soil.

Spaceflight giant Boeing was also contracted to ferry personnel to low-orbit. That flight was previously scheduled for June of this year. Speaking anonymously to Ars, NASA employees said that the sort of hype Musk is building up around even a hypothetical human launch is "not helpful".
