Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) is working toward completing its seventh milestone for NASA’s Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) initiative as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program (CCP).

This upcoming milestone will outline the company’s plans for safely flying its crewed Dragon spacecraft in low-Earth orbit, how it could rendezvous and dock with the International Space Station or other orbiting spacecraft, and then re-enter Earth’s atmosphere. The NASA Partner Integration Team, or PIT Crew, working with SpaceX during CCiCap will meet with company representatives in early June to discuss their flight itinerary plans.
