Maiden Flight of the SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket
  The maiden flight, from SpaceX, of Falcon 9 Flight 1 was on June 4, 2010. Launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Space Launch Complex 40, the launch vehicle carried a Dragon Spacecraft Qualification Unit, a mockup of the Dragon spacecraft. Do you have the knowledge and skills for the new space race? Our short courses are designed for individuals involved in planning, designing, building, launching, and operating space systems and spacecraft subsystems and components. Whether you are a busy engineer, an aviation expert or a project manager, you can enhance your understanding of space-related systems without missing much time from work. You will also gain an understanding of the basic vocabulary needed in order to interact meaningfully with your colleagues. SpaceX is developing a family of launch vehicles intended to reduce the cost and increase the reliability of access to space ultimately by a factor of ten. Their design and manufacturing facilities are located in Southern California, near the Los Angeles airport, and their propulsion development and structural test facilities are located in Central Texas. The first Dragon missions will be flown for NASA to deliver cargo to the International Space Station. The Dragon spacecraft has a flexible cargo and crew configuration and is recoverable. Pressurized cargo will be transported inside the capsule while unpressurized cargo will be located in the “trunk.” The crew configuration will be able to accommodate up to seven crew members per flight. Do you have the knowledge and skills for the new space race?
