Launch America

You can join NASA on May 27 as they launch SpaceX's Crew Dragon from Kennedy Space Center as part of the Commercial Crew Program!

The Commercial Crew Program marks a departure from NASA's traditional approach for obtaining crew transportation systems which had been developed in-house and owned by NASA. The Commercial Crew Program gave much more creative freedom to companies to develop their own systems to deliver astronauts to low-Earth orbit.

This mission, called Demo-2, is SpaceX's final flight test of the spacecraft (Crew Dragon), the launch vehicle (Falcon 9), and the launch pad (LC-39A).

If you haven't watched NASA TV now is the time to start. They will be streaming the launch starting at 12:15 PM on May 27th leading up to launch time at 4:33 PM and will continue to stream through docking the next day. But if you let NASA know you plant to watch there are even more fun things to do. Anyone who registers at will have an opportunity to interact with NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and Kennedy Space Center Director Robert Cabana on the day before launch!

Preparing for launch.
