SpaceX’s Dragon: First Non-public Spacecraft to Achieve House Station

SpaceX, the private space company founded by entrepreneur Elon Musk, made history in the world of privately-funded space travel with its Dragon and Crew Dragon spacecraft. 

In March 2019, SpaceX’s Crew Dragon, the company’s spacecraft designed to carry astronauts into space, completed its first test mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Prior to that, in 2012, the Dragon cargo spacecraft made history when it was the first private spacecraft to berth with the ISS. Since then, Dragon has continued carrying cargo to the ISS under commercial agreements with NASA.
