2CURRENT EVENTS PAPERAbstractTraveling into space is a dream of many children growing up. It is still the dream of many adults,some of who are actually astronauts. After the Space Race, the United States has stopped sendingtheir own rockets loaded with people into space, instead they catch a ride to the International Space Station on some other countries rocket. SpaceX has taken the step to attempt to relaunch a space travel program for the United States, and just last week they sent up one of their last two tests prior to sending humans to space. SpaceX launched its latest astronaut taxi, called Crew Dragon into space, in route to the International Space Station. The Aircraft also has a human replica in a custom flight suit that will be used to collect information on the capsule’s environment. After the success of this mission, SpaceX will be launching another test mission in April to test the astronaut ejection, to ensure the safety of the passengers. If both missions are found to be successful, SpaceX will be planning on sending a pair of astronauts to the International Space Station for a two week stay this summer. Sending people to space will not be a first for the United States, but science has advanced significantly since the last time the United States sent people to space. The technology has made it safer than before and with the continual testing that SpaceX has been conducting, it will only continue to become safer.
