New Unmanned Dream Chaser Spacecraft
Meet the Dream Chaser® spacecraft - a winged, lifting-body spacecraft that provides a flexible, credible, affordable solution for International Space Station (ISS) crew transportation and a viable path to the future of human space flight operations for NASA, international and commercial space applications. Dream Chaser® is a reusable, lifting-body spacecraft that provides a flexible and affordable space transportation solution for low-Earth orbit (LEO) destinations such as transporting astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) and will be used to support a variety of other space missions. Developed by Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), Dream Chaser is the product of a dynamic collaboration among SNC and well-known, well-established aerospace companies, NASA centers, and universities. SNC is currently funded under NASA’s Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) agreement to develop a next-generation crew transportation vehicle for low-Earth orbit. SNC’s Dream Chaser is the only reusable, lifting body spacecraft that can land on a commercial runway, anywhere in the world. Learn more: http://bit.ly/1HvRFv9
