SpaceX Dragon Version 2 Uses 3-D Printing for Rockets

TheStreet (May 30, 2014) — 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

Space X Tests Dragon Parachute System

NASA (Jan. 17, 2014) — NARRATOR: SpaceX engineers prepared the 12,000 pound Dragon test article to be lifted 8,000 feet from Morro Bay, California and flown out over the Pacific Ocean. SpaceX employees worked around-the-clock on the days leading up to the company's parachute test. Heavy wind, dense fog and high seas along the coast of California didn't deter their enthusiasm as they prepared to test the parachute system that could safely splash down NASA's astronaut crew following an in-flight anomaly.
