NASA Administrator, Jim Bridenstine and SpaceX founder Elon Musk have addressed the public in a recently concluded Q&A session at SpaceX's HQ.

The Q&A was held at the SpaceX HQ in California where NASA Administrator, Jim Bridenstine and SpaceX founder Elon Musk stood next two two astronauts and answered some questions regarding their upcoming mission plans. While the talk was quite lengthy, Musk and Bridenstine were asked about the upcoming Crew Dragon project, and according to the administrator after some more testing the first crewed "Demo-2" test flight could launch as early as Q1 of 2020.

Musk also touched on the subject and said that drop tests are about to commence and SpaceX's team will be evaluating its "Mark 3" parachute design. The "Mark 3" design has replaced what was once nylon cords with much stronger "xylon" material.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
