Ready for launch


You may have recently seen the announcement by private space venture SpaceX of its new space capsule, the Dragon V2. The capsule is designed to carry six astronauts into space and has the latest in technology. This picture, even though it looks like it could be, doesn't actually show the innards of the Dragon V2 capsule, but instead some of the electrical connections on the Open 60 Great American IV, owned by Rich Wilson and recently rebuilt by Maine Yacht Center for the 2016 Vendee Globe Race.

As one observer put it, "NASA would be envious!" Maybe SpaceX too!
