Launch of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 to ISS –

Launch of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1

A crew of four astronauts have launched successfully in the #LaunchAmerica mission. They’re on the SpaceX Crew-1, the first crew rotation flight to the International Space Station by a U.S. commercial spacecraft.

NASA is totally excited by the lift-off. All went as planned and were overwhelmed by the smooth launch. The crew has a long journey ahead of it. A docking with the orbiting platform is not set to occur until about 04:00 GMT on Tuesday.

The US space agency Nasa said it is now entering a new era.

The Crew Dragon ‘Resilience’ is carrying astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Shannon Walker of NASA and Soichi Noguchi of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) to the station. Liftoff is targeted at 7:49 p.m. EST, Saturday, Nov. 14 from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The astronauts had medical checks ahead of boarding SpaceX dragon.  Care is taken to help the crew put on their suits.  Each one had their own ‘dresser tech’.
