In May 2020, SpaceX became the first company to transport astronauts to orbit. The DM-2 test mission was successful, and upon the return of the first two astronauts, SpaceX received NASA certification to conduct scheduled flights to the ISS with astronauts. At the same time, the first private missions with civilians were given the green light. SpaceX is currently planning a number of crewed missions, and this article lists them all.
