Rocket Launch: May 27, 2020 4:33 PM EDT | Commercial Crew SpaceX Manned Rocket LaunchFeatured
The Commercial Crew Program brings a new era of space exploration to the Space Coast of Florida. For this historic mission, Americans once again launch from U.S. soil for the first time since the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program.
SpaceX will send two NASA astronauts, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, on a test mission to help prove the systems meet NASA’s requirements for certification to carry astronauts to the ISS and back.
