Flying Dragon: Spacecraft passes Morro Bay

A helicopter carries a new type of reusable spacecraft called the Dragon over Morro Bay on Wednesday. The Dragon is being built by Space Exploration Technologies of Hawthorne for NASA as a new system to transport crew and materials to the International Space Station.

The company hoped to test the Dragon’s parachute system Wednesday but had to cancel because of foggy conditions. Another attempt could come today.
