NASA astronauts perform final dress rehearsal for SpaceX launch next week


Two NASA astronauts boarded their SpaceX spacecraft today (May 23) for a final rehearsal before a historic launch into orbit next week.

Astronauts Bob Behknen and Doug Hurley (as well as NASA and SpaceX mission teams) performed the “dry run” test for their next test flight on a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. The mission, NASA’s first crewed launch from American soil since 2011, will be launched from Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Wednesday May 27 at 4.33 p.m. EDT (2033 GMT).
