Summary:
Elon Musk introduced the latest spacecraft from his company SpaceX, the Dragon Version 2. In a short presentation yesterday evening from SpaceX headquarters, Musk dropped the drape on the spaceship designed to hold seven passengers and built to be reused. The operating panel pulled downed from above the seats and resembled a large Tesla dashboard. Musk called the interior esthetically pleasing in that it was clean and simple. The rockets are printed from a 3-D printer that uses a special high strength alloy, making the idea of 3-D printers more than a novelty for crafts. Video provided by TheStreet
