It had been gathered that Space X, a private American aerospace manufacturer, has revealed plans of flying real astronauts into space.
Sources reveal that organizing and planning are far advanced for the Crew Dragon spacecraft to head to space.
This follows a successful in-flight abort (IFA) test that was conducted in January 2020 after the company crossed off all the major milestones needed before flying actual people.
According to a report released by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the Crew Dragon capsule that would be used to fly astronauts is in track and could go on the mission three months earlier than was initially expected.
Termed as Demo-2, it would be second demonstration mission of the Crew Dragon, after Demo-1, which was without crew, flew in March 2019.
Per a report by techcrunch, the SpaceX spacecraft flew to the International Space Station (ISS), dock with the orbital lab, undock and return safely to Earth with a controlled landing, all using automated processes and without anyone on board.
