Zero Gravity SpaceX Tour

After becoming the first humans in history to reach orbit in a commercial spacecraft, NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Douglas Hurley took the time to give us a tour of their new SpaceX ride.

In this video, NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley take viewers on a tour of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft that will take them on a 19-hour-journey to their new home in orbit.

The Crew Dragon capsule can dock with the International Space Station completely autonomously. Astronauts, however, can take control at any time and make any adjustments of the spacecraft’s trajectory using touchscreens alone.

Behnken did however note that there are a couple of rows of buttons below that make sure all systems are working as intended and for redundancies.
