The Crew Dragon is a manned space capsule that is capable of high-tech powered hovering capability.

This particular manned space capsule is equipped with SuperDarco technology, which employes a group of eight engines. This technology is also responsible for the Crew Dragon's launch abort system, which will allow this capsule to return to the Earth and make a safe and powered landing on dry terrain. This landing can be made with helicopter-like precision and without parachutes for complete convenience and safety. The SuperDarco engines can be used to lift the space capsule into a convenient hovering position.

This manned capsule could go on to revolutionize the world of space travel by making it easier than ever to take astronauts to the International Space Station and other future space outposts.
