It’s a trip that will officially put SpaceX in the space tourism business — and it’s also a trip that could spark a small space race with NASA.
The Crew Dragon might land using parachutes or even a water landing, but the animation from SpaceX of it's propulsive landing techology was too good not to use. For more details check out: http://www.theverge.com/2017/2/28/14756488/spacex-vs-nasa-new-space-race-moon-travel-tourism
