Boeing said it expects to test-fly its Starliner capsule next month, with astronauts on board possibly in August.

Elon Musk, the CEO of US SpaceX aerospace company, said on Friday, after the launch of the SpaceX-manufactured Dragon 2 spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS), that, of all the other stages of the mission, he was most of all anxious about Dragon 2's docking with the ISS and its return to Earth.

In the video, you can see the inside of the unmanned capsule as it launches, which contains a dummy model named Ripley, and a small Earth plushy.

It's carrying a dummy named: "Ripley" after Sigourney Weaver's character in the "Alien" Franchise.

Since the Space Shuttle was retired in 2011, NASA has been unable to fly people to space and has been forced to rely on Russian Federation to ferry its astronauts to the space station, the orbiting laboratory about 250 miles above the Earth.

Measles Outbreak Not Impacting Kansas
There is a number of individuals who are not open to the messages that we have to say because they're very set in their ways. Parents care for their children, mostly infants, being treated for measles at the Pediatric Ward of the San Lazaro Hospital.

In 2014, the U.S. space agency awarded contracts to SpaceX and Boeing for them to take over this task. That's the main reason he founded SpaceX in 2002, the billionaire entrepreneur has said repeatedly over the years - to help humanity become a multiplanet species. More safety checks are also in store.

"When you're here, right, there's a pride in the country". It will not be tested until April, in a mission similar to SpaceX's.

Saturday's flight aims to test the vessel's reliability and safety in real-life conditions.

It is fitted with monitors to test the forces that future astronauts will be subjected to on takeoff and when they return to the Earth's atmosphere and then splash down in the Atlantic, slowed down by giant parachutes.

Everything will have to function according to a strict plan: the separation of the capsule and the rocket, the 27 hours orbiting towards the space station and then docking with it.

A senior RTO official told Deccan Chronicle, "Those who lost their cars in the fire accident have nothing to worry about". Hundreds of vehicles, including two-wheelers and cars, were seen parked in files in the open ground, surrounded by fire.

This handout photo released by NASA shows the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with the company's Crew Dragon spacecraft onboard is seen seen on the launch pad at Launch Complex 39A as preparations continue for the Demo-1 mission on March 1, 2019 at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

SpaceX and Boeing are part of the $8 billion Commercial Crew Program. The SpaceX company employees cheered until the capsule reached orbit.

"We're going to have more access to space at a better cost than at any point in human history", said Bridenstine, adding he was "100 per cent confident" that a manned flight would happen by year's end.

"Early on, our goal was human spaceflight", he said.

Reuters reported on February 21 that SpaceX and Boeing both must address significant design and safety concerns before they can fly humans.

Iranian president rejects Foreign Minister Zarif's resignation
The pressure has only intensified since US President Donald Trump abandoned the deal in May a year ago and reimposed crippling US sanctions.

Its Falcon 9 rockets have resupplied the space station 15 times in seven years, though one of them blew up in 2015.
