Inside the SpaceX Dragon Capsule

Here's a cool new infographic from SPACE.com showing how SpaceX's Dragon capsule works. In December 2010, the Dragon became the first spacecraft ever placed in orbit and recovered by a private company. The first operational missions of the Dragon will be flown for NASA to deliver cargo to the International Space Station, but the spacecraft is designed to carry up to seven people or a combination of personnel and cargo to low Earth orbit (LEO).
