Watch launch SpaceX Crew Dragon in live stream
The launch is scheduled for Saturday 30 May.
It is a historic day for the United States. Today the first launch by Elon Musks aerospace company, SpaceX, with human crew. Veterans Bob Behnken, 48, and Doug Hurley, 52, will take off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, from the same Apollo launch pad to reach the International Space Station: it is the first time in nine years that a crew has launched from American soil to space, and it is also the first time that this has happened thanks to a collaboration between a government agency, the American space agency and a private company.
