SpaceX demo capsule successfuly launches and returns to Earth

This article discusses the new dummy capsule that was recently launched on March 2 and had spent 5 days at the ISS (International Space Station) and only now successfully made its return to Earth. The capsule had no humans aboard, but it was launched as a demo to try and reintroduce the launch of humans from American soil, something that has seldom occurred. NASA had to hitchhike its astronauts on The Russian spacecraft Soyuz whenever they were to send them to the ISS. Since the demo capsule successfully returned and all of SpaceX and NASA's plans regarding the capsule were fulfilled, NASA has already chosen two astronauts, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley two fly aboard the crewed Dragon and they are receiving training for various emergency situations that can happen during the launch and reentry. I believe this is a critical point in the space age because it presents a very compatible and realistic way to efficiently send shuttles and humans to outer space but also to reuse rocket parts and save billions of dollars in extracting precious minerals to build the rockets.

Good job Elon, we're proud of you Wink
