Dream Chaser space plane’s first flight slips to 2022 as pandemic continues


Delays related to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic have pushed back the anticipated flight date of Sierra Nevada’s Dream Chaser space plane to 2022. 

Dream Chaser is one of the NASA-selected cargo vehicles that, once it begins to fly, will resupply the International Space Station (ISS), along with SpaceX’s Dragon and Northrop Grumman‘s Cygnus capsules. But even as the space plane’s launch is delayed, its parent company continues to aim towards sending humans to the moon and, eventually, Mars.
