Successful Space X and NASA launch

on 16 November 2020

SpaceX and NASA successfully launched a new mission to the International Space Station from Florida, USA.

The Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon capsule Resilience lifted off at 7:27 p.m. EST (2:27 AM local time), from Kennedy Space Center. The capsule carried the four astronauts — Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi (Japan) — in the first regularly scheduled trip to take four crew members for a six-month stay at the space station.

The journey will last for about 27 hours.
