Dragon V2: New spacecraft could revolutionize Space exploration

SpaceX

The California-based company SpaceX has recently presented its Dragon V2 spacecraft. What makes Dragon V2 sp special is that it will be able to take-off and land anywhere on Earth with the accuracy of a helicopter without a runway.

The re-useable space capsule which has seven seats can land vertically due to its side-mounted thrusters and legs. The company is applying for NASA contracts, as NASA depends on Russian Spacecrafts for transporting its astronauts into space.
