If you’re in the LA area this week and are interested in flying something into orbit, you might want to check out SpaceX’s invitation-only DragonLab Users Workshop, scheduled for Thursday in Hawthorne.
DragonLab is a “free-flying, reusable spacecraft capable of hosting pressurized and unpressurized payloads to and from space” that is set for launch next year aboard the company’s Falcon 9 rocket. The spacecraft is being designed to launch cargo and crew to the International Space Station.
“This workshop will be an opportunity for potential customers to fully explore DragonLabâ€™s capabilities, as well as present customer-specific interests and requirements. The workshop agenda includes an overview of the Dragon spacecraft, concept of operations, payload accommodations and cost parameters.
â€œ’Just as importantly,’ said Max Vozoff, Product Manager for Dragon and DragonLab and host of the Users Workshop, ‘we will hear from potential users about their applications, requirements, and concerns, as well as discuss contracting mechanisms. We will also include a tour of our 550,000 square foot SpaceX manufacturing facility where we design and build all major systems for SpaceX launch vehicles and spacecraft.’â€
