Museum Exhibits Historic SpaceX Dragon Spacecraft Jan. 17-19
The first commercial spacecraft on-view for only 3 days
SEATTLE, Jan. 12, 2014--Museum of Flight visitors can experience the past, present and future of space travel during the three-day showing of the pioneering SpaceX Dragon spacecraft, Jan 17-19. The Dragon made history in May 2012 when it became the first commercial spacecraft to deliver cargo to and from the International Space Station and safely return cargo to Earth, a feat previously achieved only by governments. Since then, Dragon spacecraft have routinely made the trip, with final modifications underway on a crewed version. SpaceX states its ultimate goal is to enable people to live on other planets. Dragon is a historic stride in that direction.
Viewing Dragon is free with admission to the Museum.
