SpaceX and a Female Mannequin Named ‘Ripley'
NASA has given a "go" for Crew Dragon's inaugural launch aboard a Falcon 9 rocket on Saturday at 2:49 a.m. ET. The mission has a roughly 80% chance of good weather for launch, according to a forecast issued Thursday.
For this experimental mission, called Demo-1, SpaceX won't launch any of NASA's finest to the International Space Station. Instead, it will send 400 pounds of cargo and a crash-test dummy wearing a spacesuit.
