Have a burning question to ask SpaceX? Six software engineers who worked on the technology inside the Crew Dragon capsule will be hosting an Ask Me Anything Q&A session on Reddit on Saturday.
The spacecraft named Dragonship Endeavour was flown by NASA astronauts to the space station on May 30, making history as the first SpaceX machine to send humans to space.
SpaceX is fielding all types of questions including topics like, “Dragon, software, and working at SpaceX.”
