Story here.  It is a shame that this will be a non-crewed vehicle as a crewed version would be really neat.  We are entering the heyday of private spaceflight, and that is a good thing. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Looks like the first full crew launch of the Dragon capsule will be in October due to a lot of other missions to the ISS in September.  Three NASA and one JAXA astronaut will be on board.  Can’t wait to see it. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)
