Mission NS-14 is expected to test safety and communication systems prior to the company’s plans to send its crew into space. The spacecraft has two parts: a crew capsule and a booster. Capsules are designed to carry humans on missions sometime in the future.
According to NASA Spaceflight, the capsule has six seats and contains a test dummy called the Mannequin Skywalker.
