KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – To hold space fans over until the first Crew Dragon spaceflight with astronauts on board, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk shared a video this week showing what the NASA astronauts will experience as they blast off into space on a Falcon 9 rocket.

It’s been a busy year with major milestones — and setbacks — as both SpaceX and Boeing inch closer to launching astronauts from the Space Coast.

The last time NASA astronauts launched from U.S. soil was in 2011. As part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, Boeing and SpaceX have been developing spacecraft to end that gap in human spaceflight from Cape Canaveral.

However, both companies still have more challenges ahead in the new year as they prepare to launch people for the first time.

SpaceX’s Crew Dragon had a successful test flight — sans astronauts — in March to the International Space Station and the company is planning a launch abort test in January.
