HAWTHORNE, Calif. (AP) - A company that has flown unmanned capsules to the Space Station unveiled a spacecraft designed to ferry up to seven astronauts to low-Earth orbit that SpaceX founder Elon Musk says will lower the cost of going to space.

The futuristic, cone-headed craft dubbed Dragon V2 featured landing legs that pop out and a propulsion system designed to land almost anywhere "with the accuracy of a helicopter," Musk said Thursday at the Southern California rocket builder's headquarters near Los Angeles International Airport.

Yesss! Obama hasn't managed to murder the Dream, hard as he's tried. Maybe we'll make it, after all. :-)

Too bad NASA can't do this.

Of course building a space craft wouldn't be inline with their mission of 'muslim outreach' that the president gave them.

Yep. But SpaceX can -- and does. SpaceX is much more like the entrepreneurs Robert A. Heinlein envisioned exploring space and helping people settle on other worlds, too. :-)
