SpaceX Crew Dragon

Space launch
With the help of more than 60 Cal Poly Engineering graduates, SpaceX became the first commercial company to successfully launch a crewed orbital spacecraft on May 30, 2020. In this photo, astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken of NASA's Commercial Crew Program ride in the SpaceX Crew Dragon as it approaches the International Space Station (ISS) on May 31. The success of the flight, known as Crew Dragon Demo-2, will determine the launch date for the SpaceX Crew-1 mission, which will transport a crew of four including Cal Poly alumnus Victor Glover (general engineering, ’99) to the ISS. Tentatively, the Crew-1 mission is scheduled to launch August 30. Photo courtesy of NASA.
