On May 30 local time, NASA's Commercial Manned Aviation Program (CPP) successfully launched its first manned trial flight.
At 3:22 p.m. EDT, American astronauts Douglas Hurley (Doug) and Robert Benken (Bob) boarded the SpaceX manned "Dragon" spacecraft. The Eagle 9 rocket was launched into space from the 39A launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and is scheduled to dock with the International Space Station at 2:27 p.m. EDT.
This is the first time since 2011 that the United States has used its own rockets and spacecraft to send astronauts to the International Space Station from home. It is also the first commercial manned space launch developed by a private company in human history. As planned, the two astronauts will stay on the International Space Station for about 110 days and will complete a series of space research projects.
