- The USA opened a new era of human space travel as a private company (SpaceX, of course) launched astronauts into orbit for the first time , nearly 10 years after the “NASA’s Space Shuttle Retirement”.
- Falcon 9 sent Crew Dragon Spacecraft to orbit on its flight with two NASA astronauts – Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to the ISS (International Space Station).
- The astronauts lifted off from a familiar setting, the same Florida launchpad that once served Apollo missions and the space shuttles, but this time it was operated by Elon Musk’s SpaceX. Big Achievement for Elon Musk and SpaceX as they managed to do it in this time of pandemic.
