The SpaceX Dragon helped to revolutionize what it means to travel through space, something that SpaceX has been doing with each iteration of their spaceships. The team over at SpaceX knows a little something about innovating for space travel and the new Dragon V2 is raising the bar another few notches all over again.

One of the big things that has been changed and improved upon is the landing. Initially the first Dragon would use a parachute and had to land in water. The V2 is different because it can land anywhere on land with its propulsion system. Not only is this safer, but it's also a lot more comfortable for the astronauts going through it.

The spacecraft is also very small in comparison to the average spacecraft, making for a luxurious ride without the bulk. Stats for Miniature Space Taxis Trending: Older & Mild
