BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – SpaceX has announced that the target date for the first rocket launch with a crew capsule is set for January 7 from Kennedy Space Center.
No astronauts will be on board for this demonstration mission, but this is the first launch of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon, a spacecraft that will soon transport astronauts to the International Space Station.
It is time for a new era of space exploration where astronauts once again launch into space from American soil. Under the Commercial Crew Program, NASA and industry partners prepare for the next generation of American spacecraft that will launch astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) from here, the Space Coast of Florida.
The Commercial Crew SpaceX Demonstration Mission 1 will launch SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket from America’s multi-user spaceport, Kennedy Space Center.
