Things are heating up at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) as on the morning of Thursday, January 3, SpaceX rolled out their beautiful, long awaited Crew Dragon (Dragon 2) to Launch Complex 39A on Falcon 9 booster B1051.1. That afternoon, Dragon D2-1 (C202) and rocket went vertical, creating a beautiful, thought provoking display. Demonstration Mission 1 (DM-1) is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, January 17 with updates to come as we close in. This first flight will be an uncrewed flight to the International Space Station (ISS) with DM-2 possibly being crewed if all goes well with DM-1 and the in-flight abort test.
