NASA and SpaceX are joining forces to bring astronauts in the outer space for the first time in the last decade. The historic astronaut launch from the American soil already has some concrete goals and targets to achieve. The takeoff is scheduled this year on May 27 and will take place at the Kennedy Space Center.
This inaugural trip into the Universe will be accomplished by astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken in late May. This new mission is the first crewed mission powered by NASA’s Commercial Crew program. This new partnership was created to improve the American launch partnerships using the help and the resources of private companies.
NASA and SpaceX Plan To Fly US Astronauts In Space, In May
The SpaceX company is owned and directed by Elon-Musk, who has tremendously worked to provide the Demo-2 forthcoming flight. In the meantime, the rocket is still undergoing some tests to make sure that this event is going to prove successful and that the astronaut will be able to reach the orbiting space safely.
The final test is meant to check once again all the components of the Crew Dragon and Falcon 9 launch and make sure that they are the perfect areas for an extended stay in the outer space. The last test included rocket launches, as well as several operational facilities from the ground base and astronaut procedure.
In the likely event that all of these purposes go as planned, the SpaceX Crew Dragon will receive the full operational certification. Therefore, the company will be certified to deliver astronauts in the Universe. The astronauts can reach the orbit in 24 hours after the launch.
The primary purpose of this research is to provide information that could help scientists understand better the evolution of the formation of the Universe. The SpaceX mission is going to last at least 110 days, but several changes in the schedule might be adapted to the needs of the research.
