NASA Approves SpaceX to Fly Astronauts to the ISS – IT Pro – News

-

The planned space flight with two astronauts transported to the International Space Station is allowed to proceed. NASA has given the green light for the flight, with SpaceX taking on the launch with its Falcon 9 rocket.

The approval means that for the first time in nearly a decade, astronauts are being transported to the ISS from U.S. territory. The Americans are currently using Russian facilities to get their astronauts to the International Space Station. The launch of the two astronauts, Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley, is planned to take place next Wednesday. That date was already planned, but NASA still had to give the green light; that came on Friday.

SpaceX will then launch a Falcon 9 rocket, taking the two astronauts into a Crew Dragon capsule. This variant of the Dragon capsule, which was previously used to transport cargo to the ISS, has been tested in recent times. The Falcon 9 takes off from launch complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

NASA is also using the flight as the first test for SpaceX’s manned space program. If nothing goes wrong, more Falcon 9 launches with Crew Dragon may follow.
