Watch SpaceX Launch NASA Astronauts to Space Live Right Here [Updated]

Update, 6:21 am AEST: Today's launch was postponed on account of weather. The action begins Wednesday at 3 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT) with a live, two-hour broadcast of the launch by SpaceX and NASA.

The Crew Dragon Capsule, as part of its final demonstration, will be ferrying NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley to the ISS.

It looks entirely different to the enormous space shuttles, huge winged vehicles that carried astronauts into space from U.S. soil from 1981 to 2011. Launch America: Mission to Space Live ABC News and the National Geographic Channel have teamed up for two days of coverage for SpaceX's Demo-2 launch in what they've billed as "Launch America: Mission to Space Live", according to Space.com.

The historic mission is a collaboration between NASA and Elon Musk's SpaceX. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said he hopes this launch will inspire awe and uplift the general public during the ongoing coronavirus health crisis. "It's now 2020 and we're only on the cusp, but we are here".

Altman said a successful flight could be a giant leap forward for the future of American space travel. Since then, NASA has been forced to pay Russia to send people into space on Russian Soyuz spacecraft.

Once the crew takes off, it will only take about 9 minutes for the Crew Dragon to reach orbit.

Eddie said his sister and the other two women hadn't spread coronavirus deliberately. They will now be ordered to quarantine.

If the upcoming launch is successful, the United States will be able to usher in a new era in the history of commercial space exploration. Advocacy group Space Florida believed the mission would further encourage private investment in the Space Coast, bringing in more companies, jobs and opportunities.

"We're looking at making Florida the primary port of entry for human and economic opportunity in the Solar System", said Dale Ketcham, Space Florida's vice president of government and external affairs.

The astronauts plan to dock with the ISS and remain there for an indeterminate period.

"We're expecting a smooth ride but we're expecting a loud ride", said Behnken, who, like Hurley, flew in the shuttles twice.

NASA chose Doug Herley and Bob Behnken to pilot SpaceX's test flight, Demo-2/ Both already have flown two space subtle missions in their career.
