Initially, the Crew Dragon was designed in 2010 to transport astronauts. However, at the end it transported goods thanks to a collaboration with NASA. In 2012 Dragon made history because it became the first private spacecraft to deliver goods to the space station. First, only the governments had succeeded. However, in April 2019 a mission with astronauts is planned.

SpaceX has also created some brand new suits that can only use the astronauts inside the spacecraft so not for spacewalking.

Origin of the name Crew Dragon

The name Crew Dragon was given by its CEO (Elon Musk) inspired by the song “Puff, the Magic Dragon” by Peter, Paul and Mary to respond to critics who considered the project impossible.
