Rapid descent through the atmosphere of our planet was the most difficult part of the mission Demo-1, in which the Crew Dragon capsule carried out a test flight to the International space station, according to SpaceX founder Elon musk.

The Dragon Crew Module, with a length of eight meters and a capacity of seven astronauts, was able to take only 200 pounds of cargo in this flight. Surviving passengers — in addition to the dummy "Ripley" — was not on Board. His plan was to reach and dock to the space station a day after launch, to spend there five days, and then plunge into the Atlantic ocean off the coast of Florida — which, in fact, happened.

The crew Module, like its rocket reusable is an important part of the business model of SpaceX, the calculated savings due to multiple usage. Multi-million dollar investments will be used again and not "thrown away" after a single use.

If this first flight Crew Dragon deemed successful, the next Dragon mission will take place in July with the participation of NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley. Also from this it follows that the Russian modules "Union" .
