WATCH: SpaceX launches its first NASA crew mission to International Space Station đŸ”Š

SpaceX is prepar­ing to launch a crew of four astro­nauts to the Inter­na­tion­al Space Sta­tion on its first oper­a­tion flight for NASA on Sun­day night.

The Fal­con 9 is sched­uled for a 7:27 p.m. EST take­off from Flori­da’s Bre­vard Coun­ty, weath­er permitting.

The goal is to have Fal­con 9 car­ry four Crew‑1 astro­nauts in a Crew Drag­on cap­sule. The flight to the ISS is expect­ed to take approx­i­mate­ly 27 hours. The cap­sule will be com­mand­ed by Air Force Col. Mike Hop­kins and pilot­ed by for­mer Navy test pilot Vic­tor Glover. The crew is round­ed out by John­son Space Cen­ter vet­er­an Shan­non Walk­er and Soichi Noguchi from the Japan­ese Aero­space Explo­ration Agency. This will be Glover’s first spaceflight.
