BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Don Walker, Director of Communications, wants to remind residents and visitors to think safety first and foremost during the upcoming SpaceX Crew Dragon launch on Wednesday, May 27.

SpaceX’s transporter-erector vehicle carried the rocket, topped by the Crew Dragon spacecraft, from a nearby SpaceX processing hangar to the launch pad, arriving early Thursday morning.

The rocket was then raised to vertical.

Liftoff is slated for May 27 at 4:33 p.m. EDT.

Demo-2 will serve as an end-to-end test of SpaceX’s crew transportation system, paving the way for NASA to certify the system for regular, crewed flights to the orbiting laboratory as a part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.

NASA’s SpaceX Demo-2 mission will be the first crewed flight to launch from U.S. soil since the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program in 2011.
