A SpaceX rocket will send two American astronauts to the International Space Station on May 27, NASA announced on Friday, the first crewed spaceflight from the US in nearly a decade.
"On May 27, @NASA will once again launch American astronauts on American rockets from American soil!" Jim Bridenstine, head of NASA, said in a tweet.
Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley will lift off @ 16:32 local time (20:32 UTC) on May 27 from historic launch pad 39A.
It will take approximately 24 hours after liftoff for them to dock with the ISS. The length of their stay aboard the ISS has not been determined. Behnken and Hurley have been training for years for the mission.
