Dream Chaser enters final testing ahead of 2024 debut space flight

Dream Chaser, Sierra Space’s shuttle-shaped spacecraft, is undergoing final testing in preparation for its very first taste of space. It’s called Tenacity. 

Assembly of the spacecraft was completed in early November, after which it was shipped from a Sierra Space facility in Louisville, Colorado to NASA’s Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility in Ohio for environmental testing, according to a Sierra Space statement.
