SpaceX & NASA Attempting First Manned Space Flight
The crew, commander Douglas Hurley and astronaut Robert Behnken, both joined the astronaut corps in 2000. Hurley, a former Marine fighter pilot and test pilot, is a veteran of two previous space missions, serving as pilot of the final space shuttle flight in 2011. Behnken, a former Air Force test pilot, has logged more than 708 hours in space on two shuttle missions and completed six spacewalks.
On May 27, 2020, NASA will attempt to launch SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule from Cape Canaveral – the first manned flight from American soil in nearly a decade. The countdown has begun, in the midst of a pandemic, to see what the next generation of space technology could bring. #nasa #spacex #launch #crewdragon
