Sierra Space’s Dream Chaser Tenacity spaceplane is headed to NASA’s Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility in coming weeks for environmental testing. This is because the company was awarded a contract from NASA to resupply the International Space Station, and Dream Chaser hopes to forge a path towards shared space exploration as well as international cooperation.
Future Dream Chaser spaceplanes will be able to facilitate the transportation of cargo and human astronauts to low-Earth orbit (LEO). This multi-mission platform is suited for both the needs of both domestic and international customers. NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services 2 (CRS-2) contract allows Dream Chaser to provide essential cargo delivery, return, and disposal services for the International Space Station.
I am reminded of a comment made by Steve Jobs that every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. I think Dream Chaser is that product. This breakthrough shifts paradigms and redefines space travel. The Dream Chaser is not just a product; it’s a testament to human spirit, determination and the relentless pursuit of what lies beyond,” said Tom Vice, Sierra Space CEO.
