Given the weather, SpaceX and NASA officials said on Tuesday that the safety of astronauts is paramount for them. For the first time in the last decade, astronauts will fly from Florida. A SpaceX rocket carrying the Dragon capsule with NASA pilots Doug Hurley and Bob Benken scheduled to fly from the Kennedy International Space Station on Wednesday afternoon. However, SpaceX first spacecraft ready to launch.
If all goes well, SpaceX will become the first private company to send astronauts to space. This is something that only Russia, American, and China have been able to do so far.
This is the first time that a private company will send astronauts to space instead of the government. On the eve of the space departure, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine from the Kennedy Space Center said that the space agency and Space X have told everyone involved with the departure to be free to stop the countdown the moment they see any concern or trouble. Huh.
US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are expected to be present at the International Space Station at 4:30 PM in the predetermined evening. Bridenstine said that the safety of astronauts is paramount.
