Inside Demo-2, SpaceX's mission to launch NASA astronauts into space
Eighteen years after Elon Musk founded SpaceX, the rocket company is preparing to launch its first people. On May 27, NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley will board SpaceX's new Crew Dragon spaceship and ride it to space atop a Falcon 9 rocket. A successful flight would mark the resurrection of crewed spaceflight from American soil using American spaceships and rockets for the first time in nearly a decade.
