Initiated in , completed in , Project Mercury was the United States' first man-in-space program. The second U.S. manned space program was announced in January Gemini involved 12 flights, including two unmanned flight tests of the equipment. The mission started with the Russian Soyuz launch on J , followed by the U.S.   The next step, pending FAA approval, is to test such landings for real, using a prototype called DragonFly at the company’s test range in rural McGregor, Texas, halfway between Dallas and Austin. SpaceX has already tested a smaller landing vehicle called Grasshopper at the same site. The DragonFly test program, due to begin later this year and Author: Tony Reichhardt.
