FiHow does the Crew Dragon Spacecraft work? (SpaceX)


Jared Owen writes:

It is really neat to see a spacecraft from a private company take astronauts to the space station. This video was my attempt to explain how it works in a short video. SpaceX has done a really good job explaining things but it all happens in really long livesteam videos that many people don't have time to watch! I've made videos on other space topics like the Space Shuttle and the Soyuz - I used some video clips from those videos.

I used quite a few 3D models that I've collected over the years (like the International Space Station and Launch Complex 39A). For Crew Dragon I bought a model of the capsule and then did the interior myself. I also modeled the trunk and the Falcon 9 rocket. It was a lot of fun😀 I hope to do more space videos in the near future. I hope you enjoy this video and please share your feedback!

I make 3D animations about how things work and post them to youtube!

  1. That was really excellent. Great graphics, the commentary was perfectly paced and spoken in a measured tone (much better than most over-enthusiastic TV documentaries) and the background music was not competing with the voiceover too much. Great job!
