## Dragon's High-Speed Maneuver

When fully loaded with a crew and payload, the Crew Dragon weighs about $10 \, 000 \, \textrm{kg}$. But compared to the Falcon 9, the Crew Dragon is tiny—less than $2 \%$ of the rocket's total mass.

But the Crew Dragon is a fully-equipped spacecraft in its own right, complete with maneuvering thrusters for navigating in low-Earth orbit. It even has an autonomous flight system, because flying a rocket is never as easy as it looks in the movies.
