Soyuz has arrived: now check out the competition

Boeing unveiled the interior of their CST-100 a while ago; now SpaceX has revealed their first flight Dragon V2 capsule, with enlarged pods to carry the SuperDraco engines that will serve both as escape system and return rockets.  This capsule will be first of a kind in that it will make a fully powered landing — no parachutes or gliding, although parachutes are still provided as a backup.  And the interior looks nice too.  Check out it!

One thing I find slightly amusing — Boeing modeled their CST-100 interior after the 787 Dreamliner, while SpaceX modeled the Dragon interior on the Tesla sports car.  Both companies evidently know how to use their interior design teams.  😉
