SpaceX is testing life-support system of the manned version of the Dragon capsule

NASA engineers evaluate the functioning of life support systems, which will be equipped with a spaceship of Dragon, to ensure a safe journey to its astronauts to the International Space Station.

The company SpaceX has built ECLSS (environmental control and life support system ) module for the evaluation of the key elements of life support systems for the manned spacecraft Dragon Company,
which plans to start the transportation of astronauts to the orbiting laboratory at the beginning of 2018.

This module is the first model Dragon spacecraft in which the company's engineers have tried to reflect all the essential features of a real machine to be able to eliminate most of the disadvantages before you're ready version for the flight, NASA officials said in a published statement.

While NASA engineers are assessing ECLSS module, SpaceX company specialists continue the development and construction of the systems of the spacecraft launch and flight control. After the representatives of the company SpaceX, NASA will give the appropriate license for the capsule, the manned spacecraft Dragon version will go to the ISS aboard the Falcon 9 rocket from the platform at Kennedy Space Center, located in Florida, United States, the agency said.
