The success of the Falcon 9 rockets, developed by a private company SpaceX, may soon cancel all plans for the development of Russian cosmonautics. Since the development of SpaceX, created by the founder of the payment system PayPal Elon Musk, casts doubt on the latest Russian technology advantage - its low cost. Dragon was originally conceived with the expectation that he will carry cargo and deliver to the ISS NASA astronauts. According to the calculations of Americans, the delivery of astronauts on Dragon SpaceX will cost no more than $ 20 million, which is 3 times cheaper than the "Soyuz" vehicles.
