SpaceX has been delivering cargo to and from the International Space Station since 2012, and in 2020 SpaceX began transporting people to the orbiting laboratory under NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.

Cargo Missions

SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft is capable of carrying up to 6,000 kgs / 13,228 lbs of cargo to the Station and returning 3,000 kgs / 6,614 lbs of cargo back to Earth. To date, Dragon has made over 20 trips to the orbiting laboratory.

Crew Missions

Designed from the beginning to transport people, SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft is capable of carrying both NASA and commercial astronauts to destinations in low-Earth orbit, the Moon and beyond.



The Dragon spacecraft is capable of carrying up to 7 passengers to and from Earth orbit and beyond. The pressurized section of the capsule is designed to carry both people and environmentally sensitive cargo.
