Space-X is planning on launching their first crewed mission to the International Space Station. Inside of the Crew Dragon capsule, NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley will be launched into space using Space-X’s Falcon 9 rocket, which has be tested extensively over the past couple of years. The Crew Dragon spacecraft can fit seven astronauts and is tasked with flying round trips to the International Space Station. If successful, this project would be a large leap forward for aerospace due to both the Crew Dragon and Falcon 9 rocket being created to be reusable. Docking with the International Space Station is expected 19 hours after launch.
