SpaceX Demo-1

SpaceX Demo-1 will be the first orbital test of Crew Dragon. It is an uncrewed demonstration mission as part of NASA's Commercial Crew program. The spacecraft will test the approach and automated docking procedures with the International Space Station (ISS), remain docked for a few days, then conduct the full re-entry, splashdown and recovery steps to provide data requisite to subsequently qualify for flights transporting humans to the ISS. Life support systems will be monitored during the test flight.
