SpaceX Dragon Rocket Simulator

Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, a.k.a SpaceX, is a privately owned American aerospace manufacturing and space travelling services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. With the goal of reducing space transportation costs to enable the colonization of Mars, SpaceX was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk. The company has since developed several launch vehicles, including the Dragon spacecraft.

The Dragon is a free-flying spacecraft designed to deliver both cargo and people to orbiting destinations. It is the only spacecraft currently flying that is capable of returning significant amounts of cargo back to Earth. Currently, the Dragon carries cargo to space, but it was designed from the beginning to carry humans. The first demonstration flight under NASA’s Commercial Crew Program launched on March 2, 2019. The Dragon successfully docked with the International Space Station (ISS) ahead of schedule on March 3, 2019, becoming the first American spacecraft in history to autonomously dock with the ISS. Now it is your turn to navigate a spacecraft. Here is a true-life simulator of the SpaceX Dragon Rocket that enables you to attempt to dock with the ISS. Good luck and tell us how you do:
