  • 'Astronaut' dummy Ripley rides aboard SpaceX's Crew Dragon bound for space station

    "Alien" fans, Ripley rides again.

    That's the name of the space-suited dummy aboard SpaceX's Crew Dragon that launched Saturday, a hat tip to Ellen Ripley, the heroine of the sci-fi movie series.

    Crew Dragon is the first commercially operated spacecraft designed to carry astronauts, and the uncrewed demonstration mission to the International Space Station is a test to make sure everything works before humans are rocketed into space in the capsule. It's expected to dock Sunday at the space station.

    Sounds like tempting fate, doesn't it?
