Sierra Nevada Corporation
Sierra Nevada Corporation is picking up the pace in its mission to carry cargo to and from the International Space Station using a next-generation spaceplane, with NASA giving its Dream Chaser vehicle the production all clear following a design and performance review.
The Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) has been given the green light from NASA for its Dream Chaser spacecraft to visit the orbital laboratory in late 2020.
After years of development the latest Dream Chaser spaceplane has completed its first captive carry flight test. Hoisted up by a Chinook helicopter, the Dream Chaser will undertake one more captive carry flight test in the near future before embarking upon its first free flight later this year.
