SpaceX revealed a video and images showing the aircraft currently being built for missions to ISS.

SpaceX has finally provided a glimpse into the Crew Dragon Capsule. The aircraft is being currently built by SpaceX for taking astronaut to the ISS. SpaceX revealed images and a video which shows the design of the aircraft.

The peeks show how the interior and exterior of the aircraft is extremely luxurious. The exterior is the classical no-frills guitar pick-shaped. According to SpaceX the aircraft was designed with the comfort of the astronauts in mind.

The seats of the Crew Dragon Capsule are made from the highest-grade carbon fiber and Alcantara cloth. Furthermore the aircraft has four large windows. The astronauts can easily enjoy watching the earth shrink while on their mission. Sadly the aircraft lacks a bathroom, but there is surely a reason for the omission. 

Many screens have been strategically placed around the Crew Dragon Capsule. The screens show real-time info about the spacecraft's condition. Information such as how far the destination is will be displayed on the screens.

The temperature of the aircraft can also be manipulated by the astronauts. The passengers can choose to change the temperature between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The Crew Dragon Capsule although automatic can also be used manually in case of emergency. 

The space pod also comes with an emergency escape system. The escape system of the aircraft was famously tested by SpaceX earlier this year. SpaceX is supposedly finishing the aircraft and only finishing touches remain.

The aircraft will be ready to shuttle human passengers by the year 2017. SpaceX made history in 2012 when it became the first non-government aircraft to deliver cargo into space.
