The Creator of the SpaceX project Elon Musk said that in a month his rocket will go to the ISS. As part of the test flight, there will be no astronauts on it.
On Twitter, SpaceX has a photo of the Crew Dragon spacecraft and the Falcon 9 launch vehicle, which are already installed at the spaceport in Florida. According to him, they should go to the ISS.
Spectrum News indicates that it is a test run, which was originally scheduled for January 17, but now Musk claims that this event will happen in a month.
According to plans of the American businessman the first ship has to reach ISS and return back without astronauts. In the future, the launches will be manned.
The first astronauts on SpaceX ships should go into space in the summer of 2019.
In 2017, Musk promised to send the first space tourists to orbit by the end of 2018. It was about a week-long flight around the moon. However, this did not happen.
A statement about the new date of the rocket flight to the ISS Musk published a few days after the Chinese probe “Chang’e-4” for the first time in the history of space exploration was able to sit on the reverse side of the moon and handed out photos.
