The transfer of astronauts on the mission will be completed by a vehicle provided by Tesla, musk’s CEO, and will be the Model X for the crew to be transported to the launch platform.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine has also released multiple photos of the transshipment vehicle, the Model X used to transport astronauts to the launch pad, with NASA logos on the roof and doors.

SpaceX is carrying two astronauts to the International Space Station on a NASA launch mission code-named Demo-2, with Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken on the mission.

Notably, in January, a SpaceX spokesman confirmed the first manned spacecraft launch mission, which will be carried by Model X to the launch pad, when the mission is expected to take place as soon as April.
