SpaceX plans to send people into space, not in 2017 and 2018

As we previously reported, due to the autumn explosion of the Falcon 9 rocket and a lengthy investigation of the reasons his company SpaceX had to adjust the schedule runs. In the end, it was announced that the next start is transferred at the beginning of January 2017.


Now confirmed reports that SpaceX plans on sending humans into space next year, not destined to come true. First test flight with people company SpaceX will try to implement in may 2018. This will be preceded by the launch the same spacecraft in November 2017 with no crew. SpaceX said that the company needs more time to check all systems and if necessary making adjustments.



Competing with SpaceX in space exploration the Boeing company adjusted the previously published plan. A test run of the spacecraft Cockpit of the Boeing CST-100 is planned for June 2018, and a manned launch with the crew in case of successful testing will take place in August 2018.
