BREVARD COUNTY • PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, FLORIDA – The success of Crew Demo-2 can mean only one thing; Human Space Flight is back on the Eastern Range.

The team at the U.S. Air Force 45th Operations Group, Det. 3, redesignated as Task Force 45, has spent countless hours training for this mission.

The commercial crew era has officially begun with this launch of American astronauts on an American spacecraft from American soil.

Control of the flight has been transferred from the SpaceX launch control team at Kennedy to the mission control team at the company’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California.

The nine Merlin engines on the Falcon rocket’s first stage are generating more than 1.7 million pounds of thrust as the vehicle climbs away from Florida’s Space Coast.

At about one minute into the flight, the rocket passed through Max Q, the point of peak mechanical stress on the rocket.
