(SPACENEWS.COM) — NASA announced March 18 it plans to perform a crewed flight of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft, with two NASA astronauts on board, as soon as the latter half of May.

In a media advisory, NASA said the launch of the Demo-2 mission was scheduled for no earlier than mid-to-late May on a Falcon 9 rocket from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

While that date is subject to change, the fact that NASA is starting the media accreditation process indicates some degree of confidence in that timeframe.

Before the announcement, there were signs that NASA would attempt a launch around that time.
