SpaceX NASA Crew Dragon Launch
NASA and SpaceX have determined that the weather is permittable to launch two astronauts to the International Space Station, marking the first crewed mission for Elon Musk’s company as well as the first launch of NASA astronauts – Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley – from American soil since the retirement of the space shuttle program in 2011. Read more for the livestream and additional information.



Several hours ahead the planned launch, Hurley and Behnken geared up for the launch as they spoke with Bridenstine and SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk. After bidding goodbye to their families, they were transported to the launchpad in Tesla Model X electric SUVs. Once arriving, they entered the elevator that whisked them the top of the launch structure and walked across a connecting arm, before the two were strapped into the Crew Dragon capsule. *Note – NASA scrubbed the launch due to weather, has been rescheduled to 3:22pm EST on Saturday (May 30).
