The next version of the Dragon spacecraft built by the private spaceflight company SpaceX will look like something truly out of this world, according to Elon Musk, the company’s billionaire founder and CEO.
Musk detailed some of the high points of the firm’s much-anticipated Dragon Version 2 to reporters Thursday during a briefing with NASA to celebrate the firm’s second successful cargo mission to the International Space Station. SpaceX’s unmanned Dragon capsule returned to Earth Tuesday with a successful splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.
But according to Musk, Dragon Version 2 landings won’t be so … wet. But it may look weird.
