This is a part of SpaceX’s partnership with NASA under a Space Act Agreement to advance the design of crew transportation vehicles.
One of the tests was to determine whether the layout will allow astronauts to maneuver effectively in the vehicle.
Several veteran space shuttle astronauts and NASA engineers conducted the evaluation during a pair of two-day-long reviews.
