In this brilliant comparison photo, you can check out the tech progression from 1967 to this past weekend’s launch that saw SpaceX make its first launch of people into orbit with its new Crew Dragon spacecraft, which itself was a milestone.
The flight marked the first time astronauts have launched into orbit from American soil in nearly 10 years or so, and SpaceX is now the first company to send people into orbit on a privately made craft. [source]
The two NASA astronauts, who have now arrived at the International Space Station, are Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley.
