McGregor, Texas — Two weeks after Space Exploration Technologies’ (SpaceX) Dragon spacecraft made history as the first commercial vehicle to visit the International Space Station, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden traveled to McGregor, Texas to see the historic spacecraft before heading to SpaceX’s Headquarters in Hawthorne, California.
The event includes the opportunity to see the historic Dragon spacecraft from last month’s mission to the space station. The cargo from that mission is being offloaded in Texas and handed over to NASA.
A similar event will take place Thursday at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California.
These events were open to US citizens or permanent residents only. A government issued ID is required to enter SpaceX facilities. Permanent residents should bring their green card.
