The American spacecraft Dragon V2 successfully otrabotal test period
Spacecraft for cargo delivery to the ISS from SpaceX successfully worked, it turned out to be quite a successful development, the spacecraft Dragon V2 (Dragon Crew, Dragon 2) of SpaceX is a reusable module. The ship was first sent to the ISS in an unmanned version, it was only a test flight, but judging by the fact that Elon Musk smiles and laughs with Rogozin, then with a great deal of optimism we can assume that Dragon V2 is a successful brainchild of SpaceX. A special vessel caught a descent capsule in the Atlantic. Everything worked super successfully, the mission of SpaceX Demo-1 successfully completed. The descent module fell into the ocean in a precisely defined square 360 km from the Florida Peninsula. The necessary tools from the ISS were delivered to The earth`s surface, the total weight of the descent equipment was 136 kg, all intact, all the results of scientific experiments with the ISS were not damaged.
Capsule long hung on the surface of the ocean when she noticed a parachute in the sky over the ocean, was raised by a military aircraft, accompanied and led monitoring. Further into the square the ship SpaceX is "Go Searcher", which is just specializiruetsya and more than once caught the spacecraft Dragon series. The capsule is first caught, then a special crane is lifted on Board the ship. In the future, the engineers of SpaceX are going to use not splashdown, and controlled landing using rocket engines, and parachutes if they are on Board, it will be as if in reserve. Using the engines it will be possible to plant the capsule softer and at the desired point of the earth`s surface. Probably in the company SpaceX is easily implemented, but NASA decided that such a descent with the astronauts is not the safest and covered the topic.
Dragon V2 was near the ISS 5 working days, everything went without complications. Although, for some reason on the ISS after docking this module there was a smell of isopropyl alcohol, but the air purification system quickly coped with this problem and there were no further complications.
At this time, NASA specialists are working in the study of the flight and the system itself for its further correct use. This is not the last test flight, in may another dragon will fly to the ISS in test mode, the second time will test the emergency landing system. If all goes well, then in July the us astronauts will fly to the ISS already on their ship and the need for Alliances will no longer be. Although the flight to the ISS in July will be a test, it will still be held with two astronauts on Board. When this stage of tests is passed, a dragon will fly into space with 4 astronauts on Board.
This test flight of the Dragon V2 was launched on February 2, brought into space module American rocket Falcon 9. America has once again confirmed its technologies and developments in the field of means of delivery to orbit.
