With NASA temporarily (we hope) out of the manned spaceflight business, our once-proud space program has been reduced to paying the Russians over $70 million per seat to ferry astronauts to the International Space Station.

Now, the private company, SpaceX — which has already completed 3 successful missions to the space station — has unveiled its Dragon V2, which will not only be able to carry 7 astronauts into orbit, but can return them safely and land them in your backyard with the precision of a helicopter.

Yeah, Russians, bring it on: American technology is alive and well.
