Elon Musk has done it again. The creator of the Tesla electric car has been turning his talents skyward with the SpaceX project. Today, he unveiled the capsule that he hopes will carry seven astronauts into space: the SpaceX Dragon V2.
The capsule will be able to land back on Earth with thrusters and retractable legs, coming down with the accuracy of a helicopter, he says. Musk says his SpaceX crew will then be able to refuel and launch again quickly.
