Web-casts and cable-casts are set for coverage of the historic launch, rescheduled to Sunday evening, of three NASA astronauts and one Japanese astronaut bound for the International Space Station (ISS), using the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. This first regular operational, Crew-1 mission was originally scheduled for Saturday evening.

SpaceX, founded in 2002 by billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, plans to launch the astronauts toward the International Space Station on Sunday Evening, 2020 November 15 at 7:27 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) / November 16, 0:27 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

The launch had been originally scheduled for Saturday Evening, 2020 November 14 at 7:49 p.m. EST / November 15, 0:49 UTC. However, the launch was delayed due to concerns regarding on-shore winds and to enable recovery of the first stage booster, which is planned to be reused to launch the Crew-2 mission next year. The booster is expected to land on the recovery ship about nine minutes after launch.

The launch will occur from Launch Complex 39A at the John F. Kennedy Space Center, at Cape Canaveral on Merritt Island, Florida. This is the same launch pad which saw the launch of the Apollo missions to the Moon, 1968 to 1972, and the Space Shuttle missions beginning on 1981 April 12; Space Shuttle missions concluded on 2011 July 21.

NASA-TV, available through the NASA Internet web-site, will provide live coverage of the launch, beginning on Sunday at 3:15 p.m. EST / 20:15 UTC (Internet link to the NASA-TV web-page near the end of this blog-post). NASA will provide continuous coverage - more than 30 hours - of the pre-launch, launch, docking and arrival activities for the first crew rotation flight of the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket following certification by NASA for regular flights to the Space Station. The Crew Dragon capsule is scheduled to dock with the ISS at approximately 11:00 p.m. EST on Monday, 2020 November 16 / November 17, 4:00 UTC.

Coverage of the launch will also be available on two cable television channels: Discovery and Science. Chances are good that the three major cable news channels, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News Channel may also provide coverage at the actual time of launch.

As of Saturday evening, the U.S. Air Force 45th Weather Squadron determined that weather conditions provided a 50 per-cent favorable chance of a launch of Crew-1 on Sunday evening.

The very first SpaceX astronaut mission to the ISS was a demonstration mission, launching two astronauts, on May 30. While the demonstration mission in May was short, this first operational mission will have the four astronauts stay on the ISS for about a half-year.

This Crew-1 flight will include Mission Commander Michael Hopkins (NASA), Pilot Victor Glover (NASA), Mission Specialist Shannon Walker (NASA), and Mission Specialist Soichi Noguchi (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency – JAXA). Victor Glover, a Navy test pilot who is launching on his first space mission, will be the first African-American to have an extended stay on the International Space Station.

Crew-1 is the first crew rotation flight of a U.S. commercial spacecraft with astronauts to the Space Station following the spacecraft system’s official human rating certification.

  6. This is very helpful with no side effect...Before I began Doctor Aziba natural penis enlargement Product I measured 4 Inches in erect length, and 3 inches in erect girth. While flaccid I measured 3.4 Inches long. I began using his product, slightly skeptical I admit, and just 2 weeks later I was very happy with my progress. I measured 7.5 inches erect length and 6.5 inches erect girth, and 5.5 inches flaccid length. I was actually quite shocked at the huge gains I’d had, and continued using the product regularly, sticking to the usage schedule rigorously. After about 2-3 weeks I am 8.2 Inches in erect length and 8.1 Inches in erect girth. I am also 7.2 inches long while flaccid. This has had a huge impact on my life, not only has my sex life improved greatly, I feel much more confident and proud.
